Fallopia multiflora / Tsurudokudami ツルドクダミ

Fallopia multiflora is a perennial climbing herb seen on roadsides, vacant lots, forest edges, etc., an indigenous-to-China species introduced in Japan hundreds of years ago. Leaves are oval-shaped with heart-shaped bases, 3-7.5cm in length, and the tips taper off; the petioles have joints from which leaves tend to leave off. Inflorescences are conical, with both male and female flowers mingling in each of them. Bloom time: August-October.
