This lovely Californian shrub, the only one in its genus, needs a warm sheltered spot, ideally against a wall, although in mild areas it can be grown in the open garden. It is normally evergreen, but may lose some of its leaves in a cold winter which can also cause some injury to stems. Young plants are the most vulnerable and need protection over winter. Once established the bushes are covered with large, 8cm (3in) blooms, scented and gleaming white with a prominent boss of yellow stamens. Pruning is seldom necessary. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
