What is Pulsatilla cernua

Pulsatilla cernua or Okinagusa (scientific name: Pulsatilla cernua) is a perennial plant belonging to the family Ranunculaceae, which is native to Japan, the Korean Peninsula and China. In Japan, it grows naturally on the grasslands in the mountains of Honshu-Shikoku and Kyushu. The whole is covered with white hair, such as flower stems and leaves. In spring, a flower of dark red blooms at the tip of the stem. The flower (actually, the calyx) blooms downward at the time of flowering and gradually upwards as it blooms. The flower name was given by considering the white hair of the whole grass and seeds as the baldness of the old man. It is highly toxic, as in the case of Ranunculaceae. On the other hand, it is used as a folk medicine.
Another species is Pseudomonas radishes (scientific name: Pulsatilla vulgaris ) .
