|Omphalodes japonica, a
perennial, occurs in shades of a tree or roadsides in hilly
districts, the whole being abundant in divaricate hairs. Radical
leaves are plenty, 12-15cm in length, 2-3cm in width, in a
lanceolate shape, with wavy margins. On-stem leaves embrace stems at
the bases, and the stem tips emerge racemes and open about
1cm-in-diameter light blue-purple flowers from one to another. As
the flowering is over, peduncles droop down. Bloom time: April-May.
