A garden flower photo

Comments on this photo


This evergreen shrub can grow to the height of 6ft. Also know as Mexican orange blossom. With its fragrant star shaped very pretty flowers, and equally fragrant, attractive foliage. I found this difficult to pass on when I came across it this week. Now I can enjoy, and care for this magical, plant in my garden.

A good choice of plant. To my nose, the flowers are wonderfully sweet, but in contrast, the foilage, when gently crushed, reminds me of luncheon meat ! My father has two of these in his front garden that he clips tightly into 4ft balls and when in flower you can barely see any foilage. They look like two big snowballs !
