Thesium chinense / Kanabikisou カナビキソウ

 
Thesium chinense is a 10-25cm tall hemiparasitic perennial occurring in sunny grassland, having a tinge of white/green throughout. The stem comes in a bundle, with linear 2-4cm long alternate leaves. A single flower lacking petals blooms at the end of the short stalk at an axil. Each calyx lobe sprits into 4 or 5 at the tip. There exist two vesicles of the same shape, like a leaf, at the base plus one bract beneath.
