A small dioecious, deciduous tree with a smooth bark and rather stout, downy branchlets. Leaves 6 to 10 in. long; leaflets five to fifteen, oval-lanceolate to narrowly lanceolate, 112 to 4 in. long, 12 to 112 in. wide; distinctly unequal at the base, tapering at the apex gradually to a slender point; indistinctly notched and ciliate on the margin, glabrous and dark green above, vividly glaucous beneath, and furnished with white down at the base; stalk, midrib, and main-stalk red. Flowers in dense, rounded corymbs.

Native of China and Japan; introduced by Wilson in 1907 from W. Hupeh, where it is very common. As represented at Kew, its leaflets are the narrowest in the hardy euodias, and are distinct also in their very glaucous under-surface and red leaf-stalks.
