I think I got this in my garden. Am just not that happy about it.
Still very few leaves on it even now, at end of summer. All crammed at end of branches.
Flowers... well, really early spring blooms, but I think they were attacked by cold. Very few managed to open.

I have three of these. One, in full shade, has attractive foliage but doesn't bloom. The one in part shade blooms moderately. By the front door, in full sun and poor soil, I have one that blooms profusely from February until May, and has spread to about 3 feet tall and 6 feet wide. The smell is heavenly for about 20 feet in all directions and makes winter feel like spring. It gets no summer water and doesn't mind at all.

Atlanta, GA - I bought three small plants last fall and they are all blooming now. I could not resist cutting a flower and bringing it in to admire closeup - then after the blooms had faded I thought "hmmm - put the cutting in a pot under my seed lights?" Now - in just a couple of weeks - I have two very sturdy little plants making nice green growth. Very satisfactory! I plan to do a few more... I have just regular shop lights.

Incredible fragrance almost gets lost in our large yard, but still worth it. Long bloom period in early spring and attractive evergreen, glossy foliage are added bonuses for this plant.
