Additional Info

The plant blooms almost all year and has a wonderful spicy fragrance that carries a good distance both day and night. Many other white blooming plants are only fragrant at night. Blooming can be heavy or light depending on the bloom cycle. Flowers with 5 petals average 4 inches across and stand out nicely against the foliage, which is elliptic in shape. They are a pinwheeled shaped work of art. The foliage is very beautiful as well as its dark green shiny leaves. The semi-glossy leaves average 6 inches in length. This shrub likes acid soil conditions best. Treat it like a gardenia – plant it at least 5 to 6 feet away from any concrete or container is even better. It does well in filtered light locations or in the morning sun. Although it’s slow growing, it is capable of reaching 15 feet.
