Circaea mollis is a 20-60cm-in-height perennial occurring in forest fields and mountains, in the shade of a tree, with stems with downward hairs and, in many cases, red-brown-tinged nodes. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, long-ovate, with pointed tips and shallow serrations on the margins, measuring 5-13cm in length and 1.5-4cm in width. Stem tips or axiles on upper parts create small white or pale red flowers; petals are two and cleft in two. The fruit (nut) has hooked hairs around. Bloom time: August-September.
