It is commonly known as Chinese thuja, Oriental arborvitae, Chinese arborvitae, biota or oriental thuja.

It is native to northeastern parts of eastern Asia and north Asia, but is also now naturalised as an introduced species elsewhere in Asia.

Biota is a slow-growing tree native to China and can reach a height of about 14metres.  It grows best in moist soil and when cultivated, biota produces vast quantities of seeds. Both the seeds and branches are used in healing.

Resistant to drought, it is very often used as an ornamental tree, both in its homeland, where it is associated with long life and vitality, and very widely elsewhere in temperate climates.
