Hydrocotyle maritima / Nochidome ノチドメ

Hydrocotyle maritima is a perennial plant inhabiting damp fields, roadsides, or paths between paddies. Stems, slender, sparsely branch, crawl on the ground, emerge fibrous roots at nodes, and the upper parts of the stems extend obliquely upward. Leaves are in a kidney-shaped orbicular shape, 2-3cm in diameter, cleft in five, with bases cordate and margins with obtuse serrations on margins. Axils emerge shorter-than-the-leaf's-height peduncles and set ten or more small greenish flowers gathering together on the tips. Bloom time: June-October.
