Douglas Justice's November 2020 in the Garden - UBC Botanical Garden blog is out, which he starts by talking about flowers and fragrance. I am posting this first photo of Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Morioka Weeping', not mentioned in the blog, with no leaves or flowers at all, to say that when I was in the area, not even that near the tree, I was overtaken by the katsura fragrance enough to look around for the tree. So there I was where the Elaeagnus macrophylla was supposed to be, assuming that I would be able to just follow my nose to locate it, as that's how I found the Elaeagnus × ebbingei ‘Gilt Edge’ at Dart's Hill Garden last month. Fortunately, right at the top of the path, there was Douglas himself, who came to help me out. It seems it was covered with flowers last week; I did finally find a few flowers, and could imagine that maybe there was a bit of a fragrance. Maybe. Douglas pointed out the fruit forming in the fifth photo. There is quite a bit more to the plant than I have shown here. This is the Cotoneaster glabratus on which the Elaeagnus is climbing. Nearby are the Nipponanthemum nipponicum, Nippon daisies. A little up the path is Disanthus cercidifolius, which I've posted several times, but not for these flowers. These also got a mention for their "strange semi-metallic aroma", which maybe I think I might have detected with some effort and imagination. Also nearby is Viburnum foetidum, which I would not have noticed at all, but Douglas was particularly interested in it, and now I don't remember why. It hasn't ever appeared on the forums, so here are some photos. The name would suggest some sort of smell, which I now read is noticeable when the leaves are crushed. I did fondle a leaf, didn't notice anything.
