Abelia serrata / Kotsukubaneutsugi コツクバネウツギ

Abelia serrata, a shrub with gray-white to gray-brown barks, branches well to grow thick, reaching around 2m in height, and inhabits sunny trivial woods forests. Leaves are opposite; blades are ovate or narrow-oblong-shaped, 2.5-5cm long, 1-2cm wide, with margins with uneven serrations or none. There are dense, short, divaricate hairs around the midrib's bases on the back surfaces. 1-7 flowers set themselves on new branches - yellow-white or yellow, or occasionally light-red-tinged. Corollas, 1-2cm long, are funnel-shaped and abruptly expand out of the slender floral tubes with extended hair insides. Bloom time: May-June.
