Myrsine seguinii H.Lév.Family: Primulaceae
Japanese: タイミンタチバナ (大明橘) [Taimin Tachibana]
Species collectively called 'tachibana' in Japanese can be seen throughout lower mountains and foothills. An internet search brings up pages on uses in Chinese medicine. One of my mentors likes to point to Myrsine seguinii, Ardisia quinquegona, or a similar plant and ask who knows which it is. It's difficult for newbies and non-botanists like myself because, although we can say they are quite different at a glance, we don't have the vocabulary (word or imagery) to explain how they are different.
