Euphorbia jolkinii / Iwataigeki イワタイゲキ

   
Euphorbia jolkinii, a perennial herb of 30-50cm in height, inhabits rocky areas in seashores, forming colonial clusters, with well-developed rhizomes entering cracks deep. Stems are thick, and alternate leaves are dense, 4-7cm in length, in the long-oblong or oblanceolate shape. Also, the stems set some leaves in a whorl on their ends and radiate branches in all directions from leaf axils and bear ochathiums (cup-shaped inflorescences) with yellow flowers. Bloom time: April-June.
