Shrub, spectacular for its intensely fragrant creamy-white flowers which emit waves of perfume at night. The fragrance has been described variously as “resembling orange blossoms” and “sweet musk mingled with heliotrope.” Will bloom repeatedly through the year if well-fed and watered. Can reach 2.5m/8ft in height if not pruned back.
