Chloranthus serratus / Futarishizuka フタリシズカ

 
Chloranthus serratus, a perennial herb of 30-60cm, grows in forests in hilly districts. Leaves attach themselves oppositely on stem tops in 2-3 pairs, somewhat apart from each other. Leaves are glossless green, with spiny serrations on the margins. Spikes generally comprise two, varying from 1 to occasionally 3-5; filaments, short, curve toward inside to envelop pistils. Central stamens attach two anthers inside their bases, and two stamens outside set the anthers one each. Bloom time: April-June.
