Its gland-dotted leaves are small, simple, and opposite. The trees are usually propagated from seeds that are planted in shaded areas. Flowering begins about the fifth year; a tree may annually yield up to 34 kg (75 pounds) of dried buds. The buds are hand-picked in late summer and again in winter and are then sun-dried. Cloves vary in length from about 13 to 19 mm (0.5 to 0.75 inch). The buds contain 14 to 20 percent essential oil, the principal component of which is the aromatic oil eugenol (Eugenol is used in germicides, a local anesthetic for toothaches, perfumes, and mouthwashes, in the synthesis of vanillin, and as a sweetener or intensifier).
