Comments: Stemmadenia is one of the most beautiful and fragrant tropical species. It is a small tree with multi-layered canopy and paired oval leaves, dark green, about 6 inches long. When in full bloom, perfume fills the area with a soft, musky fragrance. A massive abundance of flowers covers the branches, pure white against the glossy leaves, and carpets the ground with fallen blossoms. The small, orange fruits often appear in pairs.
