The sweet scent of osmanthus

The city air is permeated with the fragrance of sweet-scented osmanthus as the flowers bloom in Shanghai.

They began flowering from Tuesday as recorded by the Shanghai Botanical Garden in Xuhui District, the latest flowering in a decade and 63 days later than last year.

Sweet-scented osmanthus usually starts flowering between late August and early September in the city, according to Wang Yuqin, a botanist at the garden.

But the high temperatures this year delayed their flowering. The color of the plants this year is deeper than previous years due to the late blossoming.
