This Chinese species is the lowest growing of the chloranthus we have trialed. Our 7-year-old clumps of Chloranthus serratus are now 1' tall x 3' wide, spreading slightly wider each season. The fleshy stems are adorned with four terminal olive-green leaves, with each oppositely held pair stacked just above the other. The stem is topped, starting in late-April, with two upright bottlebrush-like spikes of tiny white flowers. If your friends constantly accuse you of being overly esoteric, chloranthus is for you...very cute!
