Moderate-growing evergreen shrub with a rounded growth-habit to 10-12’ tall and wide. Can be pruned into a small tree. This popular low-maintenance landscape variety is revered for its dense glossy-green foliage as well as its clusters of creamy-yellow spring flowers with the distinctively delightful fragrance of orange blossoms. Flowers are followed by numerous green fruit that mature to brown often opening to reveal their orange-colored seeds. This highly adaptable variety tolerates coastal conditions as well as warm inland climates.
