Extraordinary fragrance and bloom season distinguish this tropical tree. Wonderfully fragrant blossoms are less yellow in color than the species, blooming most abundantly in summer. Lush medium green foliage on pale bark creates striking contrasts. Excellent specimen or accent tree. Evergreen. Full sun. Moderate growth to 30 feet tall and as wide.

Design IdeasThis great white flowering shrub is primarily used as a natural hedge or screen. Large enough to block out views of unsightly adjacent land uses and even cloak unsavory odors with its fragrant flowers. Works well in sideyards to divide multistory homes with foliage. May even have some sound attenuation benefits when used streetside to mitigate taffic noise. It also serves as excellent evergreen background for large garden features such as a palapa or gazebo.
