The oval evergreen crown of this small tree gives privacy, and the glossy leaves and fragrant white autumn flowers gives year round interest. It thrives on free draining soils but may lose leaves in the severest of winters, so it is best grown in a sunny aspect with protection against biting winter winds. It can be grown close to buildings as it can be also classified as a large shrub and the maximum height will not be a problem for foundations.
Ideal Conditions: Grows well in most soil
Maximum Height: 5 metres
