This well-loved evergreen shrub from Mexico enjoys warm conditions. In mild gardens it will reach full size in the open, but elsewhere plants benefit if sheltered from the cold winds that can damage the foliage and restrict growth - a warm wall is ideal, or plants may be grown in containers that can be moved under cover in winter. The bushes look attractive at all times, but especially when covered with the very fragrant white blooms shorten stems by 25-30cm (10-12in) after flower to encourage a second flush in autumn. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Hello there. I find this scrapbook really handy as I am doing the RHS Diploma in Horticulture at Regents Park. The plant Identity is always a bit of a challenge.
The scrapbook would be even better if it could be divided into dofferent sections. Is it possible to do this?
Good all round plant with a scent. Not for the front of border. Flowers are small but pretty. I cut mine back from 6ft to 3ft with no problems.
