Lindera umbellata / Kuromoji クロモジ

 
Lindera umbellata is a deciduous shrub with smooth gray-brown barks found in forests in mountainous regions. Leaves are alternate, 5-10cm long, 1.5-3.5cm wide, obovate-like long oblong, with sharp tips and bases cuneate, and margins are entire. Leaf axils emerge umbels in which many small yellow-green flowers bloom - simultaneously with the development of the leaves; perianths are generally 6 in number, they are 3mm in length in male flowers, and those in female flowers are somewhat smaller. Bloom time: April.
