Details:Eurya japonica is a winter-flowering, broadleaf evergreen shrub related to the camellia. It is dioecious and native to south and east Asia. It's dark green leaves turn deep red in the winter. It produces large number of tiny green-white flowers (or black berries on female plants) that smell quite bad. The plant is slow-growing, but is resistant to salty (ocean) breezes. The plant is often used as hedge in tea gardens, and it's branches are used in many Shinto ceremonies in Japan.
