Wintersweet ( La- Mei) Starts to Bloom
Wintersweet is a very special fragrant flower blooming in the winter time. But there is an exception. One species of this plant blooms in the summer time and has no fragrance. I have a collection of three types of fragrant Wintersweet:
waxy yellow, flat petal waxy yellow and purple heart.
My purple heart is blooming now. I can smell the fragrance about one foot away outdoor. If I place one branch indoor, a small room will fill with the fragrance. It is an excellent flower for flower arrangement during Dce and Jan.
