    and last at the RCMP old headquarters. 'Jo-Nioi' which means supreme scent.......but once again i did not get a lot of scent. The bees must have got the scent as it was buzzing with bee activity, very noisy! The bracteoles (leafy bit at base of the flower stems) is suppose to be bristled. single 5 petals pure white flowers. Sometimes there is an staminoide (extra petal ) in the centre of the flower, and I think in 2 of the photos you can see that. Sorry Anne I was showing my daughter the tree so she could appreciate the scent, but neither of us got the 'supreme scent'. Maybe because it was in the shade?? multi tree pic the 'Jo-Nioi" is on the right side, West.

    I think the years of active duty at police headquarters must have worn it down because this Jo-nioi is neither as robust nor as scentful as VanDusen's tree. I've forgotten where, but I came across one translation of its name as Supreme Incense, which sounds much weightier than just Scent.

    On 'Takasago', fuzzy everything. That's a bit of an exaggeration - not major fuzz, but hairs on everything, except maybe the petals. Your third photo shows that.

    When I was taking my photos almost a week ago at this spot, I was wondering why the 'Takasago' was so fragrant, then figured out that I was smelling the 'Jo-nioi' from a few meters away.
