Native to China, Japan. A delight to the eye in every season. Winter foliage is shiny yellow-green. Beautiful in rain, when trunks look black. Grows slowly to 50 ft. or more, with wider spread. Drops leaves quite heavily in March, flowers, fruits, and twigs later. Leaves smell like camphor when crushed. Thrives in hot summer areas where winter temperatures stay above 20°F.
