I see that everybody is at work today!
Yes, thanks for the very quick responses. It looks like the plant is
Neolamarckia chinensis (with Anthocephalus cadamba as a synonym), in the
Rubiaceae. The flowers are famous for their fragrance.
The photo shows spherical heads of flowers, and sure enough, that's
sort of like our Cephalanthus occidentalis (Rubiaceae) here-
