|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.
