Diplomorpha trichotoma / Kiganpi キガンピ

Diplomorpha trichotoma is a deciduous shrub, 1-2m in height, growing in sunny forest edges around swamps in mountainous regions. The branches, i.e., the bark, are green at first, then turn brown-purple, and sprigs emerge at the points a little above the leaf axils, which characterize this species. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, each in the oval-oblong shape with entire margins, 2-8cm in length and 1-3.5cm in width. The pedicles connecting the leaves to the branches are minimum. Current units set around ten yellow-white flowers at the apexes, the calyx tubes, approximately 7mm in length, are cleft in four at the tops, and outsides are yellow-white and hairless. Bloom time: July-September.
