Trochodendron aralioides, Chimonanthus praecox, and Livistonia sp. (this last from Florida last week)

Sometimes I like them not because they're beautiful, but because they're just wonderful to look at. The sea slug looking fruits in the middle belong to Chimonanthus praecox. This is one of a pair of plants at the beginning of the China Valley path. Eugenia and I have our doubts that they are standard C. praecox. The growth habit and the bloom time are quite distinctly different from the rest of our plants.
