Daphniphyllum macropodum var. humile, a deciduous shrub that falls at the base, grows obliquely upward to 1-3m in height, inhabits forests in hilly districts with heavy snowfalls. Its branches are strong and flexible. Leaves are alternate; blades measure 10-15cn long, 3-4cn wide, in the shape of a long-oblong to oblanceolate, with entire margins and 2-4cm-long red petioles. Leaf veins are 8-10 pairs, fewer than its original species, Daphniphyllum macropodum. Flowers are dioecious; they bloom in racemes that emerged from axils on previous year's branches. Male flowers lack both sepals and petals, and females can have some sepals but next to nothing. Bloom time: May-June.
