Rhynchospermum verticillatum: A perennial that grows in hilly districts, with stems erecting 50-100cm in height and long rhizomes crawling. Caudexes (stems) stop growing at a point where two or four lateral branches will divaricate. Leaves are 7-15cm long and 17-32mm wide, with sparse dentitions on margins, sharp tips, bristles on both surfaces, and no petioles. The lower part's leaves wither in the flowering time. Flower heads, 4-5mm across, put themselves on the tops of short branchlets and generally bloom, facing downward. Bloom time: August-October.
