Sometimes referred to as Mock Orange, this lovely tropical plant is best known for its fragrant white blossoms and gorgeous evergreen foliage. Easy to care for, it tolerates most conditions and will grow well in partial shade. What an amazing aroma! The strong orange-like scented flowers are abundant in the spring and summer and even in winter when grown with decent light. The blooms are followed by bright ornamental red fruits.
In frost free locations, these make an excellent hedge or large specimen shrub. Also a great choice for indoors with bright indirect lighting, it can be pruned to virtually any size and shape you want. It is a great looking plant with the additional reward of a rich pleasing aroma. May also be grown as an inside bonsai specimen.
