a relatively newly discovered perennial species, occurs in
Shimane and Hiroshima Pref., the former inhabiting a shady
countryside forest edge. The latter is reportedly on a mountain
stream. The 30-50cm tall square-in-section stem organizes a
rosette-like mass of leaves with ternate- and pentatrinate-leaves at
the base. With lots of prominent hair on the corolla, the light
bluish-purple flowers come out in May in the prefecture.
