What is Davidia involucrata
Davidia involucrata, commonly called by handkerchief tree or dove tree, is native to China, and is a deciduous tree of the family Cornaceae. This alone forms a genus. It is the origin of the flower name that two large white mulberry leaves attached around the flower look like a handkerchief. Outstanding white mulberry leaves are the trick to call insects into small, inconspicuous flower clusters in the center. The white mulberry leaves are pale green at first, but they become white according to the flowering, and the flowers come to an end and fall as the pollination ends. There are two types of flowers, but neither has a petal (flowered piece), only a bud. Of the two types, one is a male flower with only a large number of stamens, and the other is a bisexual flower consisting of one female and 10 males. Mussaenda parviflora or Konronka(scientific name: Mussaenda parviflora) It is also called "handkerchief flower" because it has a flower and the white scaly resembles a handkerchief.
