Habitat and Ecology
In a survey in Jangmok Bay of Geoje Island, Korea, flowering shoots appeared in early March and developed into fruits in early May. By the end of May, all reproductive shoots bore mature fruits. The study indicated that the growth and flowering phenology of Z. caespitosa was strongly coupled to seasonal light conditions (Lee et al. 2005). In Wei Hai, northern China, mature seeds were found in July (F.T. Short pers. comm. 2008).
