The only species in this genus, a native of China, is a showy shrub often cultivated but only rarely escaping. Locally established in fields and at the edges of forests; first collected in 1972 in Presque Isle Co.
Species of Abelia, often cultivated especially south of Michigan, might key here but differ in lacking bristles on the ovary; the fruit in both genera is an achene or nutlet.
