Our 24 images represent the bark, leaves, flowers, and tree images of this monotypic native Chinese tree, rare in American horticulture. The name du-zhong first appears in Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing (1st Century), and the bark is listed among the superior class of medicinal plants. In Li Shi-zhen's Ben Cao Gang Mu (1596), the name du-zhong is interpreted as meaning that the plant was named for a Taoist who took the bark and became immortal. He happened to be the second son (zhong) of a family named du, hence the name.
