Diplomorpha trichotoma / Kiganpi キガンピ

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