Cananga

provided by wikipedia EN

Cananga is a small genus of trees in the family Annonaceae, native to Indo-China and Malesia, but introduced elsewhere.[2] One of its species, Cananga odorata, is important as the source of the perfume ylang-ylang.[3]

Species

Two species are recognized:[2][4]

Cananga latifolia is listed as a separate species in some sources,[5] but the basionym, Unona latifolia Hook.f. & Thomson, is a later homonym of Unona latifolia Dunal and so is not an acceptable name. Unona brandisiana was explicitly proposed as a replacement name.[4]
