Saururus chinensis is a perennial inhabiting a marsh or its fringe, growing up to 0.5-1m in height; the leaves being opposite, ovate-cordate, 5-15cm in length, a spike emerging from the axil bears many small flowers. As the season to bloom comes, leaves on the upper part of the stem turn white and return to the original light green in due course. Bloom time: June-August.
