Scutellaria stringillosa / Namikisou ナミキソウ

Unlike the other species in the same genus, Scutellaria stringillosa, a perennial of 10-40cm tall, occurs in sandy soil on seashores or close to them, propagating itself by extending slender rhizomes. Stems and leaves are with pubescent hairs. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, 1.5-3.5cm long, 1-1.5cm wide, in the shape of an oblong, with tips round, serrations obtuse on margins. Axils on the upper parts set two of each blue-purple labiate flower to bloom facing the same direction. Corollas, 2-2.2cm long, abruptly bend to stand erect. Bloom time: June-September.
