Corydalis heterocarpa var. japonica / Kikeman キケマン

Corydalis heterocarpa var. japonica is a perennial herb, 40-60cm in height, occurring on roadsides or coastal forest edges. The whole is hairless and tinges powdery-white. Leaves are of a biternate compound leaf, 10-20cm in length; the leaflets are ovate and have serrations on the margins. Stem tops emerge cyme-like inflorescences and set 15-20mm-long yellow flowers in them. Bracts are lanceolate-shaped, and peduncles measure 5mm in length. Capsules are narrow, long-oblong, about 2cm in height, not forming thin- and fat portions, unlike its original species, Corydalis heterocarpa. Bloom time: April-May.
