I've just bought this plant, do you find it an easy shrub?

Yes, I've found it very easy. If it gets cut to the ground in winter, it seems to come back fairly easily - just don't be to keen to write it off. If it keeps the top growth through the winter, there may be a little dieback but otherwise it doesn't seem to need any attention

A large, tough family, a few are cold tender and others are regarded as potential weeds in Tropical climates. C.parqui is prized for its night scented perfume.
