Medium-Large sized shrub with lush glossy foliage, new growth is light green while older growth is a rich dark green. Small white scented flowers are on display during spring and summer.
Prefers a full sun to part shade position, though a sunnier position will result in a longer, heavier flowering season. Favours a well-drained, rich, moist soil. Prune after flowering or to keep shape. Fertilise in spring.
Possibly the most popular small evergreen hedging in Sydney and now becoming just as popular in Melbourne because of it compact growth when clipped. Use in a formal landscape with other traditional favourites like Azalea 'Alba Magnifica' and Camellia 'Setsugekka'. Also perfect for Victorian Tropical Gardens.
