Lysimachia clethroides / Okatoranoo オカトラノオ

 
Lysimachia clethroides is a perennial herb inhabiting sunny grasslands in hills, growing to 0.6-1m in height and propagating by rhizomes extending long. Stems are with sparse short hairs with bases somewhat red. The leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis with sharp tips, 6-13cm in length, long-oblong or oblong-ovate. Stem tips give birth to 10-30cm long racemes, setting many white flowers. Corollas measure approximately 1cm in diameter and are deeply cut into five. Bloom time: June-July.
