A revered tree in the Far East, planted for their beautiful fragrant flowers and delicate shade in Chinese cities for 3000 years. First discovered by European botanists growing around Japanese temples where they had been planted for centuries, thus the common name. First planted in England in 1747.

Originally native to the highlands of China and Korea.
