This small shrub (1.5 x 1.5) is unscented during the day, and should be planted close to the patio to make the most of the night time fragrance. With outstanding glossy, dark green leaves, and pure white star-like flowers, it is at its best from mid-summer when in flower from January to February. A fairly slow grower, it is small enough for a patio specimen and does well in a pot. Attracts birds and is pollinated by moths.
