Dunbaria villosa / Noazuki ノアズキ

Dunbaria villosa is a creeping perennial inhabiting sunny grasslands in fields and mountains, with the whole with vellus hairs and red-brown glandular dots on the backside leaves and calyxes. Leaves comprise three leaflets, measuring 1-3cm in length and width, in the shape of an oval-like rhombus. Flowers, 1.5-1.8cm long, come in yellow, which looks like strange papilionaceous flowers; the right-side vexilla is more extensive than the others, and carinae bend around to become upward. Legumes are about 5cm long, broadly linear, with short, dense hairs and 6-7 seeds inside. Bloom time: August-September.
