Euonymus chibae / Bizenmayumi ビゼンマユミ

Euonymus chibae is a small evergreen tree inhabiting coastal forests, with green, 4-ridges. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, 3-8cm long, 1-5cm wide, in the shape of an oblong or oval, with tip abruptly tapering off to points, bases circular or cuneate, and margins with shallow serrations except for the portions close to headquarters. One or 2-3 small yellow-green flowers bloom in cymes that emerge at bud-scale-scars on the current year's branches. The flowers measure about 8mm across; petals are 4, circular, stamens 4, and sepals 4, hemispherical. Peduncles measure 5-7mm long. Bloom time: April-June.
