Peristrophe japonica / Hagurosou ハグロソウ

 
Peristrophe japonica bears unusual flowers in the shady, moist area at the skirts of a mountain. The lavender labium is conspicuous, making a significant contrast with its leaves and the other green leaves. The lips reportedly attract pollinators and serve as a landing platform.
