Chimonanthus: Wintersweet

Wintersweet flowers are an unexpected delight.

The Chimonanthus spends most of the year unnoticed and minding its own business, but when January rolls around, it lets loose a barrage of flowers that are delicate in appearance but which arguably carry the best scent of any flower, anywhere.

You have not lived, until you have cozied up to Wintersweet and taken a big whiff.
