Chimonanthus praecox (wintersweet)

18 years ago

I just wonder why this plant has been mentioned so little. I thought the plant I was looking was the more popular witch hazel, but it turns out to be this one.

I think this is the national plant for China, or at least provincial plants in some provinces. This, along with the Chinese witch hazel are the two most fragrant winter flowering plants.

Anyone knows where we can find it? Thanks.
