Corylopsis gotoana / Kouyamizuki コウヤミズキ

Corylopsis gotoana is a deciduous shrub 2-5 meters tall, inhabiting rocky grounds in mountainous regions, with gray-brown barks and new branches in the same color. Leaves are alternate; blades measure 6-12cm long, 3-9cm wide, orbicular-ovate to circular, with bases heart-shaped, shallow serrations with nifty tips on the margins, no hairs on surfaces, and whitish backsides with sparse long hairs, particularly, on veins. Four to five, about 1cm-long yellow flowers bloom before the leaves develop, in 3-4cm-long inflorescences, with stamens about the same length as petals and anthers dark red. Bloom time: March-April.
