Cedrela






CEDRELA SINENSIS (_syn Ailanthus flavescens_).--China, 1875. This is a

fast growing tree, closely resembling the Ailanthus, and evidently

quite as hardy. It has a great advantage over that tree, in that the

flowers have an agreeable odour, those of the Ailanthus being somewhat

sickly and unpleasant. The flowers are individually small, but arranged

in immense hanging bunches like those of Koelreuteria paniculata, and

being pleasantly scented are rendered still the more valuable. The

whole plant has a yellow hue, and the roots have a peculiar reddish

colour, and very unlike those of the Ailanthus, which are white.
