Lindera obtusiloba is a spreading deciduous shrub or small tree growing to 6 m (20 ft) tall and wide, with glossy aromatic leaves and deep yellow flowers which appear in spring before the leaves. Each leaf has a curious mitten-like shape that varies a little from leaf to leaf. In autumn, they turn a magnificent yellow-gold.
