The Amur velvet belongs to the family Rutaceae. It is a dioecious tree growing up to 28 meters in height. Growing in the forest, the crown of the tree is raised high, and in single planting it forms a low-set tent. The shape of the leaves is similar to the leaves of ash, but narrower and with a characteristic smell. The first leaves appear by the end of may, and in autumn they are painted in a beautiful copper hue. Amur velvet begins to bloom quite late, so the first flowers can be seen 20 years after planting. The growing season begins at the end of June and lasts for 10 days. The flowers are very small and are grouped into small brushes similar to panicles. The fruits of Amur velvet ripen in early autumn. These are small black bones with a sharp not very pleasant smell. Fruits are inedible. These trees are considered natural monuments because they grew before the glaciation period. Its life span is 300 years.
