Myriophyllum spicatum / Hozakinofusamo ホザキノフサモ

 
Myriophyllum spicatum, an introduced-from-abroad aquatic perennial herb, inhabits marshy places. Stems extend long and branch, with four pinnatifid leaves, 2-3.5cm in length, each in whorls at nodes. Flowers, light yellow, set themselves in 3-8cm-long racemes, having emerged from underwater; male flowers position themselves on the upperparts and female flowers on the lower portions. The flowers are 4-petaled on both male and female. Bloom time: Mat-October.
