Adored for its large, double, milky white flowers and strong, delightful fragrance. This evergreen shrub is known for its glossy, dark green foliage and rounded habit which adds both aesthetic appeal and function. The plant also produces flowers from late spring to autumn blooming when many other plants are dormant.

Care Considerations:

Regular watering is crucial, especially during blooming periods, to keep the soil moist but not wet as over or under-watering can lead to bud drop. Mulching around the plant helps retain moisture and protect the root system. Light pruning after the main flowering period helps maintain its shape and promote denser growth for the next season. It’s also beneficial to use compost and organic manures to enrich the soil and promote healthy growth ensuring it has enough iron, particularly if the leaves begin to yellow, is vital for maintaining health and vibrancy.
