Leibnitzia anandria / Senbon'yari センボンヤリ

 
Leibnitzia anandria is a perennial herb inhabiting sunny grasslands in hilly or mountainous regions, leaves being all together at bases in the way of a rosette. Spring leaves are oval, with margins incised, dense arachnoids on the backsides, and autumn ones measure 10-16cm in length, 3-4cm in width, in the shape of an obovate-like long oblong, and pinnately cleft. There are two types of flower heads also. Spring flowers measure 1.5cm in diameter and singly set themselves on tips of 5-15cm-long peduncles. The flower heads arrange ligulate flowers, the backsides of which tinge purple, around floral axes in a row, and tubular flowers come in the center parts. Bloom time: April-June, September-November.
