Commonly known as Pearl bush


Genus of 4 species of deciduous shrubs found in woodland from central Asia to China and Korea.

A study resulted in the probability that all descended from one species, E. racemosa, whose range has been fragmented by habitat loss, the slight differences being caused by geographical separation.
