Edgeworthia chrysantha (common names: Oriental Paperbush, Mitsumata) is a plant in the Thymelaeaceae family. The genus was named in honour of Michael Pakenham Edgeworth (1812–1881), an Irish-born Victorian era amateur botanist, who worked for the East India Company, and for his sister, writer Maria Edgeworth. The species name chrysantha derives from the Greek chrusos meaning 'golden' and 'anthos' meaning flower with reference to the gold coloured flowers.
