SOLVED: Flowering tree identification

Tampa, FL

I reside in central Florida and have a flowering tree in my backyard that I would like to identify. The tree is approximately 20 tall. The leaves are a darker green and are gently pointed at their ends. The bark on the tree is what I as an inexperienced gardener would describe as hairy/fuzzy. The flowers are white, small and fragrant. I appreciate any assistance you can provide.

The leaves and blooms make me think of citrus; the fuzzy bark, not so much. Are the blooms very fragrant?

Nice looking plant. It appears that you have an orange jessamine Murraya paniculata

Good call Porkpal Murraya is in the Rutaceae family so it is related to citrus. I wish I could grow some they have a nice fragrance

Thanks to both of you. I think you have helped me with your conclusion. I appreciate it.
