"yu huang mei" Is that a pun, or a play on words ? You hang me ?
Curious !!

Is it a GOOD "intense fragrance", hopefully ? I remember finding out about fragrant Phals so I ran right out and bought the first one I could find = Phal. amboinensis !!! It SAID "fragrant" in the species book but neglected to say REPUGNANT fragrance ! Yes, that's my opinion but that's what descriptions are for. My description of amboinensis is Pine Sol ! I couldn't take it, sold it ASAP !

So, tell me the good news !

Chryss, lol. Yu  jade; huang  emperor; mei is the shape of the flower. If the original name causes misunderstanding, just call it jade emperor.

I donÂt know if you have Cym goeringii before. Their "intense" fragrance means something else. I am out of word to describe it. The fragrance is like an ancient garden  pleasant and elegant.
