Michelia figo,  Banana Shrub (Magnoliaceae)

I hope to get a better picture of this flower. The lighting wasn't very good here. It's a pretty flower and the scent is delicious! Fragrant, creamy-yellow blooms shaded with purple have a banana-like scent. Compact densely branched shrub displays narrow, glossy leaves.
