The Story


The evergreen leaves are dark green, glossy, and leathery. They are arranged in opposite pairs along the stems and have a distinctive veined pattern.


During late spring to early summer, it adorns itself with fragrant white to pale pink tubular flowers in flattened clusters, attracting beneficial pollinators. Later in the season, it graces the garden with small metallic blue-black berries, providing a valuable food source for local wildlife.
