Damnacanthus indicus ssp. indicus / Aridooshi アリドオシ

Damnacanthus indicus ssp. indicus is an ever-green, 20-60cm in height shrub occurring in an ever-green-tree forest, with sharp thorns on the branches. The thorn is as long as the leaf length or measuring longer, making it easier to distinguish it from the other subspecies. The department arranges a large and a small pair of opposite leaves alternatively and bears two white, funnel-shaped flowers at each axil. D. indicus ssp. indicus blossoms in April-May and matures red in December. Bloom time: April-May.
