Description: A slow growing deciduous shrub to small tree eventually 5m tall in the wild. With long arching branches of orbicular-ovate doubly-serrated leaves which emerge with dark markings in their centres. Bearing yellowish pendant catkins on the bare twigs in mid-late winter, producing the pollen required by the bright red female flowers. Enabling them to bear clusters of their unusual nuts encased in the elongated husks which form a long tail. Easily grown in any type of drained fertile soil in sun or part shade. From our seed collection gathered from the deep valleys of the Hiroshima area of Japan in 2005.
