Hosiea japonica / Kurotakikazura クロタキカズラ

 
Hosiea japonica is a deciduous liana with brown barks inhabiting somewhat damp places in forests in mountainous regions. Leaves are opposite, and blades are 5-18cm in length, 2.5-12cm, in an ovate shape, tips sharply pointed in a tail way, with bases heart-shaped and large irregular serrations on margins. Surfaces are short-hairy, so do the backsides. Flowers are dioecious; axils give birth to small yellow-green flowers, approximately 8mm in diameter, facing sideways or downward. Bloom time: May-June.
