Lotus corniculatus var. japonicus / Miyakogusa ミヤコグサ

 
Lotus corniculatus var. japonicus, a perennial herb, occurs on roadsides, grasslands, or seashores; stems crawl on the ground and expand and grow to 15-35cm in height. Leaves are 0.6-1.3cm long, 3-8mm wide, in an obovate-like oblong. Peduncle tips emerge from axils and set one to three 1-1.5cm-in-length yellow, vivid flowers. Two carinae are coalescent to become tubular so that pollen may accumulate in them. Bloom time: April-October.
