Premna microphylla / Hamakusagi ハマクサギ

 
Premna microphylla, a deciduous small- or tree, generally grows as tall as 2m. Leaves are opposite, 4-12cm long, 2.5-7cm wide, broad oval, with tips shortly pointed, bases streaming toward petioles, margins entire - however, some pairs of prominent serrations on young trees, upper surface with no hairs, and white hairs on veins on lower surfaces. Branch tips give birth to panicles and sparsely set pale yellow flowers in them. Corollas are 5-10mm long and tubular; the upper parts cleft themselves in four and become somewhat tubular. Bloom time: May-June.
