Eucryphia glutinosa

The Eucryphia glutinosa originally from Chile, is situated opposite the Paper Mulberry tree far along the wall to the left as you come in through the gates, in a further section easily found by the door in the wall. It is coming to the end of its flowering season now and getting a little yellowed around the petal tips, but pictured here a week or two ago it was being sought after by the bees with its beautiful sweet smell and by visitors too, as it is a convenient 'nose' height. In twenty to fifty years it can grow up to twenty four feet high, so smell the flowers now while you can reach.
