Farfugium japonicum is a perennial herb that grows on
rocks or cliffs on the coasts. Radical leaves carry 10-38cm long
petioles; blades measure 4-15cm long and 6-30cm wide, in the shape
of a reniform, thick, and glossy. Young leaves huddle themselves in
a fist, covered with gray-brown vellus hairs. 30-75cm long flower
stalks arise in-between the leaves and set yellow flower heads in a
corymb way. The fruit (achene) is 5-6.5mm long and pappus tinge
brown. Bloom time: October-December.
