Galium verum ssp. asiaticum / Kibanakawaramatsuba キバナカワラマツバ

 
Galium verum var. asiaticum is a 30-80cm perennial herb in height inhabiting sunny, somewhat dry grasslands. Leaves are seemingly in whorls of 8-10, each 2-3cm long, 1.5-3mm wide, linear, with short prickles on tips. Two out of the 8-10 are genuine leaves, but the other 6-8 are stipules, though looking like leaves. Stem tips and axils emerge panicles that set many small yellow flowers in them; corollas measure 2mm in diameter, cleft in four, and open flat. Bloom time: July-August.
