This oriental cousin of the daphne is a deciduous shrub growing to 6' tall. The dropping of the leaves in fall expose the graceful branching of the plant and the fine flaky bark which is used in China to make a high-grade paper. Pale yellow, fragrant flowers are borne in large clusters in late winter, even before the lime green leaves.
