Abeliophyllum is rarity or fairly common. The appearance of this plant is very beautiful and was first described in 1919 by Professor Takenoshin Nakai. This plant is a member of the olive family as forsythia. It is easy to cultivate that it almost immediately found its way into American and English gardens. This plant burst into bloom late in the winter, typically for February and March. After flowers vanishing and the glossy green leaves appearing some gardeners find the leafy shrub a tad boring.The branches cut in late winter are easily forced into bloom, and the perfume is much more pronounced indoors.
The flowers produce small winged fruits similar to elms.The leaves do produce a number of glycyside and may have the same valid values as witch-hazel though the evidence isn't as clear as it for witch-hazel. It is proven that it is one of the medical plant in Korea. This plant easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It needs periodic pruning at least every 3-4years to control and maintain attractive shape. I like this plant a lot. The flower looks like an orchids that you can even make bouquet on it.
