Elsholtzia ciliata / Naginatakouju ナギナタコウジュ

 
Elsholtzia ciliata is an annual herb found on roadsides in the countryside, measuring 30-60cm in height. Leaves are opposite phyllotaxis, 3-9cm in length, 1-4cm in width, in the oval to oblong-ovate shape, the tips sharp and have serrations on the margins. Branch tops emerge spikes with many small light purple flowers. The corollas measure 5mm in length, lip-shaped, and the margins cut in exquisitely, looking like fine hairs.
