I love a tree with multi-season interest. Plus it's shade-tolerant and good down to -35 degrees (zone 3!).
Some of us don't bloom till later in life. And perhaps our meditation practice doesn't even get started till late. Still we can enjoy the fragrance of the late bloomer, whose sepals, which once held a beautiful blooming body, are even more lovely than the flower itself.
