Origin: Southern Europe, Caucasus.

Botanical characteristics: It is a medium-sized deciduous shrub that is vigorous and broadly erect. The leaves are opposite, lanceolate, dark green, up to 10 cm long and have jagged margins. The early-summer-blooming is very abundant and bears fragrant cup-shaped, cream-white flowers that are 2.5 cm broad and grouped in clusters of 5-9 flowers.

Agronomic and environmental characteristics: It is spontaneous but rare in thermophilous woodlands in the Eastern Alps and Tuscany. It has been cultivated for a long time and has gone bush. It is suitable for any well-drained soil with full sun or partial shade exposure but also for dry soils.

Use: It is commonly cultivated and used in parks and gardens individually, in groups or in mixed hedges. It is also found in the courtyard of the rural areas.
