Lamium album var. barbatum / Odorikosou オドリコソウ

 
Odorikosou, the Japanese name for Lamium album var. barbatum, links to a group of dancing ladies with rush hats on them. It inhabits semi-shady portions on roadsides, creating a somewhat large population. Pale yellow- and white types rarely exist also. Leaves are opposite, 5-10cm long, in the ovate-triangular to broad-ovate shape, with tips pointed, coarse serrations on margins, and with prominent reticulat絵dveins on surfaces. Axils on upper portions densely set white to light red-purple labiate flowers in whorls. Bloom time: March-June.
