Intensely fragrant 'wild' tree (?) can't find it!
Every mid-May, something flowers in a small strip of "wild" woodland
on my property. The wafts of intense, sweet, tropical, heady fragrance
follows me for several hundred feet of driveway. It lasts about a week-10 days.
It reminds me of my Burkwood Viburnum, but is much stronger and more pervasive.
Every year I wade into the brambles, honeysuckle shrubs
grape vines to find the elusive benefactor, finding nothing but Maples,
Sumac, Poke cherry and the afore-mentioned ubiquitous Honeysuckle shrubs.
I can't even see anything but the latter in flower!
What IS this? Some kind of Locust? Swamp lily (do we even get those?)
