Gorgeous large shrub to small tree with large bright green, leathery leaves that are aromatic when crushed. Attractive silvery-white underside to the foliage and clusters of fragrant, creamy-white flowers appear in late spring and early summer. Mature plants have a deep dark coloured bark and looks particularly attractive against the silver and green foliage. Hardy in warmer parts of the UK if given a full sun sheltered spot with a moist, but well drained fertile soil.
Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot.
