Mitella furusei var. subramosa / Charumerusou チャルメルソウ

 
Mitella furusei var. subramosa is a perennial herb inhabiting damp locations along valleys; radical leaves, with petiole, are 4-8cm in length, in the shape of a broad ovate with cordate bases. Scapes measure 15-50cm in height, with many flowers; petals are pinnately cut in three to five, and calyx lobes are erect. The fruit resembles a street vendor's fruit called charamela in Portuguese, from which the Japanese name Charumerusou comes. Bloom time: April-May.
