Evergreen rounded shrub with dark green holly-like leaves, native to western China. Masses of pendent racemes of green-white flowers smother the plant in high summer. These have a powerful sweet-honey fragrance on warm nights which will attract numerous moths. Best in moist but well drained soil in full sun with shelter from the coldeset winter winds. Fully hardy.
