Ixeris japonica / Oojishibari オオジシバリ

Ixeris japonica is a common perennial species in somewhat damp roadsides or paths between paddies; slender white stems shallowly crawl underground, nodes emerging leaves, from which new growths begin and spread around. The leaves are 6-20cm long, 1.5-3cm wide, in an oblanceolate to spatulate-oblong shape, and lower portions occasionally cleft pinnately. Flower stalks grow to about 20cm tall and set two or three 2.5-3cm-in-diameter yellow flower heads on tips. The involucres measure 1.2cm in length. Bloom time: April-May.
