Pilea japonica / Yamamizu ヤマミズ

 
Pilea japonica is an annual herb, 10-20cm in height, growing in damp, shady places in mountainous regions. The stems are weak, tinging brown. Leaves, with petioles, are opposite, in the shape of a broadly ovate, 4-6cm in length, with short tail-like tips, and with coarse serrations on margins. Leaf axils on upperparts emerge 2-3cm-long peduncles with dense light green flowers, mingling with each other. Bloom September-October.
