Elaeagnus umbellata var. rotundifolia / Marubaakigumi マルバアキグミ

 
Elaeagnus umbellata var. rotundifolia is a variety of its original species Elaeagnus umbellata, inhabiting rocky coastal areas or sandy beaches; the main difference between them lies in the shape of leaves. The leaves of this variety, measuring 3-7cm in length, 2-4cm in width, are orbicular-ovate to oval, more expansive than the original species, thicker, and scaly hairs being denser. The fruit ripens in September-November, and bloom time: April-June.
