Cynanchum: amplexicaule / Rokuonsou ロクオンソウ

Cynanchum amplexicaule, a perennial of 40-130cm in height, grows in grasslands or around wetlands. Of opposite phyllotaxis, leaves are white-green, in the shape of an oblong with bases ear-shaped, embracing the stems. Axils emerge branching peduncles with many flowers; yellow-tinged corollas cleft themselves in five, and the lobes are oblong-ovate-like triangular, around 3mm in length. July-August.
