Branches of Eurya japonica are used in Shinto ceremonies in Japan - native to southern and eastern Asia. Hard to find much info on this plant but it seems to like shade to part sun in a moist soil. Has a herringbone branching pattern (which looks like stiff fern fronds to me) and stems turn deep red in winter. I have read that the flowers have a metallic smell, not too pleasant and the female shrubs have tiny black berries. Very pretty plant.
