Details: The Yuzuriha is an slow-growing, dioecious evergreen native to central and southern Japan. It's big branches and long, globular form can lift it to a 10 meeter height. It has large leaves that are oblong and somewhat hard. It has small, greenish yellow flowers in late spring and dark blue, oval fruits in late autumn. The tree prefers partial shade, but is not hardy against cold weather, though it can stand both sea breezes and moderate pollution. It neither transplants nor prunes well, and is usually propagated from seedlings or cuttings. It is usually suitable in a garden unpruned and on its own rather than in groups.

Varieties:
Daphniphyllum teijismanni (Hime-yuzuriha)- smaller in size, but also used in gardens
