    The Chimonanthus praecox, also known as the Wintersweet has somewhat waxy creamy-yellow flowers with purple-stained inner petals which are intensely fragrant, their heavy, spicy scent almost overpowering when branches are brought into a small room. Plants take several years to flower. The cultivar “Grandiflorus” has larger flowers, which are quite yellow in color.
