What is tree of the month?

Illicium simonsii

Illicium simonsii

Why is it tree of the month?

It is a lovely pyramidal shrub with small, pale yellow, fragrant flowers that are worth seeking out for both their look and scent. It usually flowers towards the end of the month, so keep your eyes peeled!

Where can I see it?

It can be found in both the Old Arboretum (close to Main Drive and Savill Glade (tree number 25.0799)) and in Silk Wood (Sand Earth (31.1424)).
