Houttuynia cordata / Dokudami ドクダミ

 
Houttuynia cordata, a perennial herb, 15-50cn in height, grows in semi-shady areas and forms in colonies. The whole holds a unique smell, and the leaves are in the shape of a cordate, 3-8cm long, with tips shortly pointed. Stem's upper parts emerge 1-3cm long racemes and set many small flowers; the pieces of stuff that look like petals are involucral bracts, four in number. Bloom time: June-July.
