Cryptotaenia japonica / Mitsuba ミツバ


Cryptotaenia japonica, a perennial herb 30-80cm tall, occurs in damp places like forest- floors or edges; stems erect and branch at upper parts. Leaves are of a ternate compound leaf; the leaflets are oval, with pointed tips and margins with double serrations. Branch sparsely emerge compound umbels with small white flowers; as peduncles are long and short, the inflorescences do not shape like an umbrella. Bloom time: April-May.
