Stellaria sessiliflora / Miyamahakobe ミヤマハコベ

 
Stellaria sessiliflora, a perennial herb, occurs in damp places, like spaces on mountain rivers; stems crawl on the ground, and upper parts slope upward to 20-40cm in height. Leaves are yellow-green, of opposite phyllotaxis, in the shape of a broad ovate. 1-3.5cm in length, with bases somewhat cordate; surfaces are with no hairs, and the backsides have some micritrichias on veins. Around 1cm-across white flowers come at apexes of stalks emerged from axils. As each of the five petals deeply cuts in, they look 10-petalled. Bloom time: May-July.
