A large bushy evergreen shrub/spreading small tree. Glossy dark green leaves with slender spikes of small, scented white flowers in summer.


Prefers a moist well drained soil in a sunny to partly shaded position. For best results fertilise with a long term slow release fertiliser in early spring, and prune to shape when required. Will tolerate dry periods and is frost hardy when established.

Landscape Uses

A very effective hedging and screening plant that can also be left to grow into a small spreading tree. Its dark glossy green leaves will provide an ideal backdrop for other plants in the garden. It is very showy when in full flower.


Can be kept to 1.5m high x 1.5m wide or left to grow to 5.0m high x 3.0m wide.
