Chelonopsis moschata

Chelonopsis moschata


Flowers in late summer early fall. Rubbing the stem releases a musk like fragrance, giving the plant its musky scientific name (moschata). In Japanese the plant is called "Jakōsō" literally "musk plant".


Spotted at the Shirakami Sanchi, world natural heritage site.
