Mitsumata in Bloom

On my way to Prospect Park in Brooklyn the other day I stopped in my tracks when I saw this flowering shrub - Edgeworthia, aka Mitsumata. In addition to providing bark for paper, branches for decoration, it seems it also makes a rather nice ornamental shrub that blooms at the same time as the Forsythia.

Did you smell it? The scent is my favorite of its attributes.

Indeed! It had a subtle, but rather nice fragrance.
