Geranium thunbergii / Gennoshouko ゲンノショウコ

 
This species, Geranium thunbergii, is widespread throughout the country from south to north in fields, mountainsides, even roadsides, well known as a medical herb from ancient times. White variety exists, and it is not rare. The leaves of this species are of 'palmately' three-cleft or five-cleft, which may be one of the differences from the other geranium species. Bloom time: July-October.
