Scabiosa japonica / Matsumushisou マツムシソウ

 
Scabiosa japonica, a biennial growing to 60-90cm in height, inhabits grasslands in mountainous areas, whose radical leaves pass the winter in the form of a rosette. Not only the radical leaves but the other ones are pinnate as well. Tips of stems grow long to develop to peduncles, and the ends bear purple heads, each measuring 4cm in diameter. Blooming time: August-October.
