Inula salicina var. asiatica / Kasensou カセンソウ


Inula salicina var. asiatica is a 60-80cm tall perennial herb growing in sunny, damp fields and mountains, propagating by extending long rhizomes. Stems are slender and stiff, with somewhat dense hairs. Radical squamous leaves are gone in flowering time, and so are slightly big-sized leaves on lower parts. The middle part of leaves are 5-8cm long, 1-2cm wide, and long oblong-like lanceolate, with pointed tips, bases embracing the stems, and sparse serrations on margins. Flower heads, yellow, 3.5-4cm in diameter, set themselves generally singly on branch tips. Involucres are about 1cm long, about 2cm wide, and hemispheric; involucral bracts arrange themselves in 4 rows. Bloom time: July-September.
