Ribes fasciculatum / Yabusanzashi ヤブサンザシ

 
Ribes fasciculatum, a deciduous shrub growing to approximately 1m in height, with barks purple-brown, inhabits fields and mountains in hilly districts. Young branches are gray-white; vellus hairs are abundant at first but lose at a particular stage. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, 2-6cm in length, 5-6cm in width, in the shape of a broad oval, palmately cleft in 3-5 lobes whose margins have obtuse, incised serrations. Flowers, yellow-green, come out at leaf axils on previous year branches - one to some in a bundle way. Petals are spatulate, small, and erect. Sepals measure 2.5cm in length and bend generally backward. Bloom time: April-May.
