Scutellaria brachyspica / Okatatsunamisou オカタツナミソウ

Scutellaria brachyspica, a perennial herb of a height of 10-40 centimeters, grows on forest edges, mainly in hills, with dense downward hairs on stems. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, the upper ones are larger, and the lower ones are smaller, 1.5-5cm in length and 1-4cm in width, in the shape of ovate or triangular-ovate, with coarse serrations on margins. There are some glandular spots on the backside. Stem tips give birth to short spikes and densely set many light purple lip-shaped flowers on them. Corollas measure approximately 2cm in length, the tubular parts extending themselves, and the bases abruptly bend to erect. Bloom time: May-June.
