Cananga is a fast-growing, tall evergreen tree growing up to 100 feet in height, although it is usually cultivated at just 10 feet. The tree has numerous large, yellow-green, strongly scented flowers. The main harvests are in the early dry season, however the tree flowers all year round.
Two types of oil are produced from the flowers of C. odorata: cananga oil from forma macrophyllia and ylang ylang oil from forma genuine.
Ylang ylang oil is pale yellow with a powerful floral and intensely sweet odour.
