Pachysandra terminalis / Fukkisou フッキソウ

 
Pachysandra terminalis is an evergreen, monoecious subshrub found in forests in mountainous regions; the lower part of the stems crawl on the ground, and the upper parts extend diagonally upward to grow 20-30cm in height. Leaves are thick, closely alternate, 3-6cm in length, 2-4cm in width, in the shape of oval-like oblong or rhombus-like obovate, with coarse serrations on upperparts. Female flowers thickly attach to the upper parts and males, 5-7 in number, beneath them. Either sex lack petals, with four sepals only. Bloom time: March-May.
