Description:

This plant is native to W. Asia and is widely planted in parks and gardens in Prague. The foliage is a beautiful silvery shade, while the flowers are not only a nice yellow but very sweetly scented.I have not seen the fruits which resemble an olive and are yellowish brown in colour.
Is also planted in the UK,but I have not seen it often. This was seen at Pruhonice Park, the Czech Institute of Botany.
