White, heavily ruffled flowers with reddish purple eyes complement handsome, leathery dark green leaves. Dense, upright growth is more compact than others. Blooms nearly continuously over a long season, and rarely sets seeds. Tolerates air pollution. Makes a wonderful informal hedge or screen, and is easily trained into a small tree. Deciduous.
