Valeriana flaccidissima / Tsurukanokosou ツルカノコソウ

 
Valeriana flaccidissima is a perennial inhabiting the leafy shade of a tree in mountainous regions. Stems measure 20-40cm in height. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, parted in leaflets, with wavy, obtuse serrations on margins. Corollas are funnel-shaped, approximately 2mm in length; stamens do not pop out of the corollas, unlike another species, Valeriana fauiei. As flowering is over, this species extends runners long to make sprouts at the ends. Bloom time: April-May.
