Saussurea nipponica / Oodaitouhiren オオダイトウヒレン

Saussurea nipponica is a perennial herb inhabiting grassland deep in forests in mountainous regions, stems standing 0.5-1m, with dense light brown hairs. With long petioles, radical leaves stay alive in the flowering time, and they are oval, 12-18cm in length, tips pointed, and the margins serrated. Head flowers bloom in corymbs; they are light red-purple, and involucres are spindle-shaped. Involucral bracts are prominent, lining in 5 rows, each curving backward.
