Rorippa islandica / Sukashitagobou スカシタゴボウ


Rorippa islandica is a 35-50cm height annual, biennial herb occurring in paddies or wetlands on roadsides. Radical leaves are 5-15cm long, pinnately aperture, and the lobes coarsely cut themselves afresh. On-stem leaves are shallowly cleft - each becomes the upper the shallower upward, with bases expanding a little to embrace the stems in a pair-of-ears way. Flowers are yellow, 3-4mm in diameter, and fruit is 5-8mm in length. Bloom time: April-June.
