In Japan it is distributed south of Kanto. Leaves and branches have a lot of water. White flowers bloom in a tufted shape in early summer. In the autumn it makes raw fruits with bright red luster fly. It is the origin of flower name that red fruits look like coral. Trees are used for hedges and park trees. Also, it is considered a fire protection tree because leaves and branches have much moisture. It is also used for street trees and windbreak forests because it is resistant to waste gases and sea breeze. The flower language is "loserous".
