Macleaya cordata / Takenigusa タケニグサ

For approximately two decades, I have come across this tall-growing (0.5 to 2m) species, sometimes at three different locations, Macleaya cordata inhabiting the edge of a forest or a spot like that, mingling with the other shorter vegetation close to the roadside in the countryside. The three locations that were in common had a river nearby. M. cordata lacks, as is the case of some other herbs, petals, and petal-like white pieces of stuff are sepals, which drop off soon after flowering. Bloom time: July-Ausust.
