Chloranthus japonicus, which hails from low woodlands in Japan (and Korea), from Hokkaido in the north all the way south into Kyushu, is quite different from the other chloranthus species we grow. Chloranthus japonicus emerges for us as early as late March with cinnamon stalks, each clothed with four dark green leaves and topped with terminal white flowers that resemble electrocuted pipe cleaners. As the flowers fade, you're left with the nice 15" tall x 15" wide clump of bold-textured foliage during the remainder of the growing season...easy to grow and exquisitely esoteric in the woodland garden!
