The other day I left my office to pull a few weeds from the kitchen garden. As I moved among the plants, I noticed a heavenly, absolutely SWEET scent, and following 'my nose' to this bright green shrub along the fence. Michelia Figo, or banana shrub (http://www.floridata.com/ref/M/mich_fig.cfm).
This glossy green shrub was covered in cream flowers that made my head swim with a scent like bananas -- but only more upscale, more exotic,and so much less cloying than ripe bananas. INCREDIBLE! So I snapped a photo and sketched it at home.
I think come fall when my students are propatating woody ornaments, THIS shrub will be on the 'to do' list!
