Do you remember my blog on Thai rosewood? The first flowers of the Dokmai Garden sapling emerged yesterday when it turned five years old:
This mai chingchan, does it have a unique smell? I’ve never seen a full tree or its flower before. It looks quite pretty! I have seen a tree with red young leaves, not sure if it is ” chingchan”
The flowers do not have a distinct smell, but the wood has. The tree grows here and there even in the Chiang Mai valley, and also along the winding road to Pai. From a distance you rather see the purple of the calyxes rather than the baby blue flowers.
