Foot long, fragrant racemes of tiny, greenish white flowers drip down in summer from this graceful, 10', evergreen shrub with its soft, holly-like leaves. Bees love it. You will, too, in the background, as a specimen or an effective screen. For shade or part sun with protection from the afternoon sun in hottest places. Prefers rich soil and regular summer water. Frost hardy to 5 °F, mid USDA zone 7.
