Chrysosplenium album var. stamineum
Chrysosplenium album var. stamineum Saxifragaceae
They are perennial plant that grows at humid pools of humid forest such as at rocky places along the mountain stream in mountain areas and (perennial plant takes several years to grow). Among the subdued flowers in the group of Chrysosplenium, their flowers are outstandingly beautiful, which is how they are named after. They bear a couple of small flowers about 5 mm in diameter at the top of straight stalk. With no actual flower petals, 4 white roundish calyxes are facing upward like flower petals, where 8 stamens with the top in red color come out from the inside, while white and red color contrast stands out remarkably. The leaves are roundish circular sector shape, about 5 to 8 mm long with dark green and edge-round obtuse sawtooth at the edge. After flowers wither, stalks begin to spread at the root to every direction. The stalk has sparse paraphyllium.
