‘Soyang’ was selected in Chuncheon, Kangwon province in 1997 and its open pollinated progenies were proliferated at the Korea Forest Research Institute in Suwon, Kyungkido. The progenies were managed with transplanting each year and 5 to 6 times of weeding. Leaves, flowers, branches, growth characteristics on selected trees were investigated.
