Salomonia oblongifolia / Hinanokanzashi ヒナノカンザシ

 
Salomonia oblongifolia is an annual herb of the height of 10-25cm, inhabiting sunny wetlands; the leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, each 3-8mm in length, oblong to long-oblong, with little petioles. Petioles are virtually non-existent but set small flowers on them; petals, 3 in number, tinge purple, and sepals, are five, and two on sides are a little larger. Stamens are 4 in number, and filaments get together to become tubular. Bloom time: August-September.
