Chrysosplenium kiotense / Botannekonomesou ボタンネコノメソウ

Chrysosplenium kiotense is a perennial herb inhabiting wet portions of forests along the valleys in mountainous regions. Leaves on the lower parts are oval-like orbicular as those of C. fauriei. Flower stalks measure approximately 10cm in height, with lower bracts bright yellow. Flowers lack petals. Instead, dark red-brown calyx lobes, 4 in number, stand erect as if to be the petals. Eight stamens with dark red-brown anthers are shorter than the height of the calyx lobes. Bloom time: April-May.
