Originating from Australia
Lush and glossy, this exotic-looking large shrub or small tree quickly forms a well-branched specimen with handsome elongated oval evergreen leaves.
Its abundant, large bunches of tubular blooms appear at the tips of the branches, starting as pure white and maturing to a rich golden yellow. They are trumpet-shaped and strongly flared at their tips, creating a recurved five-petal star shape. Intensely fragrant, few patio plants can match the heady, exotic perfume they emit on a warm summer evening.
Great planted in a large pot and placed on a patio for the summer, then returned to a frost-free conservatory for winter. In the mildest of city or coastal gardens, it may be worth planting out in a very sheltered courtyard. This plant is easy to grow and can be pruned to a manageable size.
Height and spread after 3 – 4 years 1.8m x 1.5m
Semi-mature height and spread after 7 – 8 years if not clipped or pruned 5m x 5m
