Broussonetia kazinoki / Himekouzo ヒメコウゾ

 
Broussonetia kazinoki, a deciduous shrub, inhabits forest edges or roadsides in low hills or mountainous regions. Current new branches attach short hairs vanish later, however. Leaves are alternate; blades are 4cm long, 2-5cm wide, in the shape of a warped ovate, varying from no cuts to 3 notches, with margins somewhat acceptable. Flowers are dioecious; axils in the new branch's bases bear male inflorescences, and females put themselves in the axils on upperparts. With female inflorescences, 0.5mm-long-across, spherical, purple styles attract attention. Bloom time: April-May.
