Fragrant Shrub..

I bought a small shrub of Aglaia dupperreana from a night market during the Chinese New Year season which was recommended by the nursery staff as a very fragrant plant. And indeed, it is extremely fragrant!

               Small yellow inflorescences!                        Sweet-smelling Flowers

Recently my plant has been flowering profusely and bear flowers on every branch! The flowers are yellow and oval in shape, with no distinct petals. Look like a bunch of berries, the fragrant from these flowers is hard to describe. It is more of a very fruity and berry-like fragrant, rather than the typical flora scent.

The fragrant lingers around the area and as the wind blows, the scent of it is heavenly! Even my neighbours came out to take a look of this plant! Aglaia dupperreana is an easy plant to grow, and they need at least 5 hours of direct sunlight and lots of watering. Their leaves are in the shape of elongated ovals and thin.

I would say this is a plant you must have if you like fragrant and flowering plants!

      I got it in Clementi.. But i have purchased two more of this plant for my community garden in World Farm. I have also seen them in Thomson stretch of nurseries… They are fairly common and just ask around.
