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.
