a deciduous shrub found in somewhat damp mountainsides or skirts in
hilly districts, trunks being with gray-brown bark, generally grows
in bundles to form a ball to ovate-sphere tree shape. Leaves are in
an alternate arrangement, 7-12cm long, 7-10cm wide, triangular-
broad obovate, upper parts generally cleft in three, and bases
cuneate. However, non-cleft small ones happen to exist at times.
Leaf margins are entire, and three veins are prominent. Dioecious:
3-5 yellow flowers bloom mutually together before leaves develop.
Female flowers are fewer in number than males. Bloom time: April.
