What is Abeliophyllum distichum
Abeliophyllum distichum, Korean abeliophyllum, Korean abelialeaf, white forsythia (Scientific name: Abeliophyllum distichum) is a deciduous broad-leafed shrub in the family Oleaceae, native to the Korean Peninsula. It produces several fragrant flowers downward in early spring, similar to those of the Chinese goldenrod before the new leaves emerge. However, while the Lilienthus has yellow flowers, the Uchiwa-no-Kiwa starts out as a light red flower and turns white as the flowering progresses. The flowers have a four-deep fissure and the tips of the lobes have two shallow lobes and close. The flowers are followed by a capsule with a flat shape. The Japanese name comes from the large wings around the fruit, resembling a fan.
