Geranium thunbergii / Gennoshouko ゲンノショウコ

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