Oxalis griffithii / Miyamakatabami ミヤマカタバミ


Oxalis griffithii, a perennial, inhabits forest floors in mountainous regions, its roots being thick and making no branching. All the leaves comprise single leaves with three leaflets, and they take roots at bases; that is to say, they are radical leaves. Tips of the leaflets are succise, ending as if abruptly cut off, center portions dented, corners obtuse. Dense hairs are observable on petioles, backsides, and flower stalks. Flowers are white and measure 3-4cm in diameter. Bloom time: March-April.
