Galium spurium var. echinospermon / Yaemugura ヤエムグラ

Stems are somewhat soft but have 4-ridges with downward prickles and grow to 60-90cm in length. Leaves are in whorls of 6-8, each 1-3cm long, 1.5-4mm wide, broad-linear or narrow-oblanceolate, with prickles on tips and spines facing backward on margins and also on backside midribs. Two out of 6-8 leaves are genuine, the other 4-6 are stipules - though looking the same. Stem tips or axils bear inflorescences in which set small yellow-green flowers. Corollas are cleft in four, and stamens are four in number. Bloom time: May-June.
