Ixeris repens / Hamanigana ハマニガナ

 
Ixeris repens, a perennial herb in sandy soil in seashores, propagates by extending rhizomes long underground. Leaves are thick, with long petioles, and even if covered with the sand, they can afford to get out above the ground by themselves. Blades are 3-5cm in length and width, palmately cleft or dissected - variable. Axils give birth to peduncles, which set 2-3cm-in-diameter yellow flower heads on tips. Involucres are about 1cm long and cylindrical. Bloom time: April-October.
