Buckleya lanceolata / Tsukubane ツクバネ

Buckleya lanceolata, a small deciduous tree with a height of 1-2.5 meters, is a hemiparasite hosted by coniferous trees like cryptomerias or firs. It branches well to extend horizontally, with tops somewhat drooping and young ones being green. The simple leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, 3-7cm long, in a lanceolate shape, with tips extending in a tail way, margins with entire or shallow serrations, and short petioles. Dioecious: male flowers put themselves in cymes borne on the upper parts of the branches; female ones singly come on unit ends. Male and female light green flowers measure 4mm in diameter, with perianths cleft in four. Bloom time: May-June.
