The Japanese name Hime-uzu literally meaning small monkshood was named because leaves resemble monkshood and plant is short. Bloom small reddish white flowers on skinny stems. Flowers are 5 mm in diameter and dropping. Yellow petals are tubular inside of petal-looking bracts. Radical leaves (leaves grow from the roots) are covering ground. Leaves on stems have densely short hair. After flowering, stems grow upright and bear fruits. Split vertical and pop seeds when ripen.
