This species is dioecius and planted along the streets and for landscaping. Along the rivers the species grows well reaching up to 20 meters in height. Trees bloom in April and fruits ripe in May. This study was carried out to investigate the genetic diversity of S. koreensis within and among 10 populations throughout South Korea using ISSR marker analysis.
