Distylium racemosum

Isu Tree

This unusual small tree is a member of Witchhazel Family.  This evergreen tree has glossy leaves and small red flowers in spring.  Its fine-grained wood is used to make furniture & crafts in Japan where it apparently becomes a sizeable tree.  According to Dirr's Manual of Woody Landscape Plants it may be hardy up to zone 6.  It is uncommon in cultivation although it was introduced before the shrubby forms of the related Distylum myricoides which are becoming popular.
