A small deciduous tree that grows in the lower elevations of northern California and one spot in Orange County. "This shrub because of its glossy green foliage and light green fruits which turn brown in age should be introduced into more California gardens" McMinn, 1939. Use where you'd like to create a very different look, (prehistoric woodland). This little tree is very fragrant and can fill a yard with its sweet, almost syrupy fragrance. Small native insects are attracted to the flowers and are the pollinators. The pollinators are in turn eaten by flycatchers, scrub jays and phoebes. This Hop Tree was planted near a bird dish and the bird activity has been funto watch. A bath with the bug?
