Chloranthus japonicus / Hitorishizuka ヒトリシズカ

 
Chloranthus japonicus is a perennial herb inhabiting forests in mountainous regions, growing in crowds with stems 20-30cm in height. The branches have some purple nodes on them. Leaves, 4 in number, on stem tops are two pairs of opposite phyllotaxis, looking as if in a whorl of four. Before they open, racemes singly appear from stem tips. Flowers lack perianths; a stamen trifucates and anthers attach at the bases of the other two filaments. Connectivums are white-thread-like. Bloom time: April-May.
