Litsea coreana / Kagonoki カゴノキ


Litsea coreana: An evergreen tree that grows as tall as 22m, mingling in Machilus, Pasania, or Quercus forests in warm districts, with gray-black barks. The barks become round laminas and fall off by themselves, and the marks make white-spotted patterns that associate with a deer. Leaves put themselves on the upper parts of branches; blades measure 5-9cm long,1.5-4cm wide, oblanceolate to obovate-like long oblong, with tips obtuse, bases broadly cuneate, margins entire, thin and leathery, and glossy surfaces. Dioecious: Pale-yellow flowers gather together at the leaves sides. The inflorescences lack peduncles, with four involucral bracts. Bloom time: August-September.
