Since the Japanese Ternstroemia grows straight and spreads its branches and leaves in a fan shape, it has been prized as a Japanese landscaping tree since the Edo period (1603~1867) and is therefore known as a 'King of Garden Trees' along with the pine, the inumaki (fern pine) and others of the so-called 'Edo Goboku (5 trees)'.
