Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides / Chidomegusa チドメグサ

 
Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides, a perennial herb found in common on roadsides or in lawns, stems branch well to crawl on the ground, emerging fibrous roots from nodes, thus, making colonies. Leaves, 1-1.5cm in diameter, are circular, palmately, shallowly cleft, with bases cordate, margins with 3-5 dentitions, and surfaces glossy. Approximately ten small greenish flowers in clusters set themselves on tips of 0.5-1.2cm-long, shorter-than-the-leaves peduncles that emerged from axils. Bloom time: June-October.
