Inhabiting rocky areas in the alpine to subalpine zone west of central Honshu, including Mt. Daisen, Hypericum asahinae is a perennial herb of approximately 20cm height. Leaves, with tips obtuse, are in the shape of an oval-oblong and alternately arranged, embracing stems with their basal portions. Both dark and pale glands exist on the leaf surfaces, but the margins are the former only. Big yellow 5-petaled flowers bloom in the summertime. Bloom time: June-August.
