Valerianella locusta / Nojisha (Nodisha) ノヂシャ

 
Valerianella locusta, a native of Europe, now grows wild on roadsides or banks; stems branch out twice and rise to 10-30cm in height. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, 2-4cm in length, in an oblong-ovate to long-oblong shape, and feel soft. Branch tips give birth to closely set approximately 2mm-in-length light blue small flowers, and long-oblong bracts are conspicuous. Bloom time: May-June.
