Description

A delightful, free-flowering mid-sized shrub, is easy to care for and evergreen....Its nicknamed the Long-Leaf Wax Flower, it's rare in the UK, so you'll have people asking you what you are growing. From late spring and throughout summer, its compact, dwarf structure becomes a wash of white Choisya-like, heavily scented flowers which erupt from cerise pink buds and rival a Daphne for scent. Thrives in free draining soil, in a sunny sheltered spot.
