Phyllanthus urinaria / Komikansou コミカンソウ

Phyllanthus urinaria is an annual height of 10-40cm tall found in fields or roadsides with red stems. As leaves alternate with regularity on branches (ramus traverses), they look like pinnate compound leaves. The leaves measure 0.6-1.5cm long and are oblong to obovate. Flowers are tiny; male flowers set themselves on axils on upper portions and females on lower axils, with six perianths on either sex. Female spherical ovaries have protruded wrinkles on the surfaces that remain on brown capsules. Bloom time: July-October.
