Main asset

Plant without maintenance, solid as well in the ground as in pot or planter. Quickly forms a hiding hedge (2-2.5m). Summer flowering very fragrant and melliferous, followed by small black berries appreciated by birds in autumn.


Plant very tolerant to short pruning, to be done twice a year in early summer and autumn. Pruning suppresses flowering.

Vigorous upright shrub with semi-evergreen elliptical shiny dark green leaves. In summer appear clusters of small white flowers, very fragrant, followed by black berries.
