Large scented bowl-shaped white flowers open in late summer on this coloumnar tree forming a beautiful contrast to the dark green leathery foliage. This evergreen speciman looks good throughout the year but is particularly lovely when in flower. Plant it so its roots get some shade but the crown will need full sun and shelter from cold drying winds.

  • Garden care: In mid- or late spring lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant. After pruning apply a generous 5-7 cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
