    A few years ago during a garden tour at UBC we came upon a small shrub that blooms from the centre of the leaf. It may have been something in the Cornaceae Family but I am not certain.

    Can anyone refresh my memory as to the name of this shrub?

    Thank you!

    Helwingia japonica is one such plant, in its own family, Helwingiaceae.
    There are some photos in this forum posting: Helwingia japonica.
