Symplocos kuroki / Kuroki クロキ

Symplocos kuroki is a small evergreen- tree to tree with light brown barks found in evergreen broadleaf forests. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis; blades are 10-20cm long, 4-8cm wide, in the shape of an oblong or long-oblong, with tips pointed, bases broadly cuneate, and delicate, sharp serrations or shallow serrations on margins. The leaves feel leathery, and the surfaces are glossy. Veins are about ten pairs and significantly uplift themselves on the backsides, as with midribs. The current year's branch axils emerge racemes and set many white flowers. The inflorescences often branch at the bases, and the branches bear dense dark brown hairs. Bloom time: March-April.
