Sun exposure: ,

USDA Hardiness zone: Zn7b 10º to 5ºF

Foliage color:

Large growing evergreen shrub that we love because in spring each branch tip is home to masses of tiny offwhite flowers that pump out a sweet and pervasive citrus blossom perfume. Fast growing to 8′ x 8′ in 6 years. Full sun and well drained soil. Incredibly drought tolerant when established. Totally cold hardy and an excellent hedge. Fantastic performance in tough urban environments.  Foliage is thin and glossy and good looking year round. Easy, fragrant shrub. Water to establish then little summer water when firmly happy. Prune AFTER blooming has ended in late spring.
