 Description Macropodous daphniphyllum is distributed in China, Japan, and Korea.

In Korea in particular, it grows in warm places such as coastal areas in the south, Jejudo Island, Naejangsan Mountain, and Baegunsan Mountain in Jeolla-do.

Named "Gyoyangmok" in Chinese characters since it bears new leaves and loses the old ones, it makes for a good garden tree and enjoys popularity as a roadside tree.

The Population of Macropodous Daphniphyllum is situated at the summit of a mountain in front of Naejangsa Temple.

A big Macropodous Daphniphyllum is rarely seen in Korea and the inhabitants call the leaves of the tree “Manbyeongcho” as the leaves resemble a medicinal herb Manbyeongcho.

Since the northernmost habitat has academic value, the population of Macropodous Daphniphyllum in Naejangsan Mountain is designated and protected as a natural monument.
