Nor is it Cerbera,sorry Nandan.
Hi Michael.Ahh !You name my dear sister.Some say she smells more sweetly than I,but I think I am even more beautiful .
So presumably Chimonanthus nitens or C. salicifolius, then?
Or is it Sinocalycanthus chinensis?
Close enough Michael,I'm actually Chimonanthus praecox luteus.For those who may not know this beautiful winter flowering shrub I have attached a few photos.Coincidence is amazing!Today while driving to a lecture at Pershore college,passed Croome Park,Worcestershire.U.K.where in 1766 the Earl of Coventry,recieved the first specimen of C.Praecox to be introduced into the U.K.I found a very good description of this shrub in winter,on this site.
Do take 2 min to read it.
I found the seed case under the bush ,thought it was a bit different.Since having a digital camera I'm looking at plants a lot more closely.Thanks to everyone who had a go.Guessed the Magnolia hint would give it away to you experts.Hope you all enjoyed my first attempt!
