Abstract

The genus Kalopanax comprises 1 species of deciduous, small to medium-sized tree that is native to China, Japan, eastern Russia, and Korea (LHBH 1976; Ohashi 1994). Castor-aralia—K. septemlobus (Thunb. ex A. Murr.) Koidz.—was introduced in 1865 and has been used primarily for ornamental purposes, as a shade tree yielding a tropical effect in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 7 (Dirr 1990; Hillier 1991; Krüssmann 1984; van Gelderen and others 1994; Wijnands 1990).
