Vicia venosa ssp. cuspidata var. cuspidata  / Ebirafuji エビラフジ

Vicia venosa ssp. cuspidata var. cuspidata is a perennial herb inhabiting sides of mountain streams, and stems are erect with some odd- or even-paripinnate leaves on them, each consisting of 4-7 pairs of leaflets, which measure 3-8cm in length, 1-3cm in width, in an opposite way. The leaf lobes are in a lanceolate shape, with tips sharply pointed. With this species, tendrils do not develop. Flower stalks appear from leaf axils and set racemes on them in which red-purple to blue-purple flowers bloom - approximately 1.4mm-long butterfly-shaped. Bloom time: June-August.
