It is a very nice tall shrub, usually found in the frost free Himalaya . Cultivated for its fragrant flowers as ornamental tree. Prefers cold and large whitish flowers are highly fragrant. It does not bloom or blooms poorly in ultra tropic. Its large greenish leaves are very attractive. Its a sensitive slow grower but faster than M. grandiflora. It is quite rare to find in plain and forest . In India, Nepal few plants are found.
