Pterostyrax hispida.....Fragrant Epaulette Tree

A pleasant small tree/large shrub, Stefan tells me that this plant had died to the ground in recent years. This individual is in China Valley below the top section of path. It isn't a plant with tremendous form so it works well tucked in as it is here. The flowers are fragrant and fall delightfully in the pendant inflorescences ; the foliage not so exciting in the fall.
