Veronica hederaefolia / Furasabasou フラサバソウ

Veronica hederaefolia is a biennial herb originating in Eurasia, found in fields or on roadsides. The whole is prominently long-haired. Stems branch at lower parts and spread sideways, the tips becoming somewhat erect. Seed leaves at the foot of the stems remain until flowering time. Most leaves are opposite, 0.7-1cm in length, 0.8-1.2cm in width, in the shape of a long oblong, with 2-4 serrations on margins. Flower stalks, same in length as the leaves, appear from axils on upper portions and set single light blue-purple flowers on them. Bloom time: April-May.
