Saussurea maximowiczii / Miyakoazami ミヤコアザミ

Saussurea maximowiczii is a perennial herb inhabiting damp places around marshes or grasslands in hilly districts, its stems standing 0.5-1.5m. Radical leaves with long petioles still are alive during flowering time, and on-stem leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, in the shape of a long oblong, 11-30cm in length, and are pinnatipartite. Shoot apexes bear corymbs in which many red-purple flowers come; the flower heads measure approximately 1cm in diameter; involucres are tubular, 1-1.4cm long. Bloom time: September-October.
