Mosla dianthera / Himejiso ヒメジソ


Mosla dianthera, an annual height of 20-60cm, occurs on the mountain fringes or roadsides; stems, the cross-section square, have downwardly curved short hair on the ridges. Leaves are opposite, 2-4cm in length, oval to broadly oval, somewhat thin, the margins having coarse serrations. Branch ends produce 3-7cm-long spikes, and each gives light red-purple or white lip-shape flowers. The upper lips are cleft in three, and the lower one's tips become hollow.
