This is actually an ever-green tree. For quite a while, the plant looks like a large shrub. Over time, it becomes more tree-like and it can reach 25 feet or 7 meters tall. The entire plant emits unusual fragrance. The flowers are beautiful and in abundance. A lush blooming tree is such a scene to admire.
