Pinellia ternata / Karasubijaku カラスビジャク

Pinellia ternata is a perennial herb occurring in fields, with one or two radical leaves with three leaflets. The leaflets are 5-11cm in length, in the shape of oblong to long-oblong with pointed tips. Halfway parts of petioles and the leaflet bases produce bulbils; thus, propagation occurs. Scapes, 20-40cm in length, taller than the leaves, make spadixes enveloped by spathes. The spathes are 5-6cm long, with dense short hairs inside limbs. Inflorescence's satellites extend long in a thread way, go out of the spaches, and become erect. Bloom time: May-August.
