Mercurialis leiocarpa is
a dioecious perennial herb of 30-40cm height, inhabiting forests in
mountainous regions. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, with
stipules and petioles; blades are 6-12cm in length, in a
long-oblong-like lanceolate, with serrations on margins.
Inflorescences emerge from axils on branch tops and set small-sized
flowers in a racemose way. With male flowers, calyxes are cleft in
3, with many stamens, while female ones are with two rod-like things
and one pistil. Bloom time: March-April.
