 Clinopodium hinense var. hibetchense/ Yamakurumabana ヤマクルマバナ

Clinopodium hinense var. hibetchense is a perennial herb inhabiting forest- edges or floors in hilly districts; slender stems extend obliquely upward, seeming somewhat weak-kneed, with many hairs. With short petioles, leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, in the shape of an oval to long oval, 6-8cm in length, with tips obtusely pointed, bases circular, and margins with serrations. Branch tips bear inflorescences with several rows of white to light red-purple ligulate flowers, 6-7mm long, in whirls; upper lips are small, and lower ones are significant, cleft in three. Bloom time: June-August.
