Murraya paniculata

Orange Jessamine
Evergreen, Shrubs, Trees

Native to Southeast Asia. Open habit; fast grower to 6–15 ft. tall and wide. Good as a hedge, filler, or foundation plant. Sometimes grown as a small single- or multitrunked tree. Has graceful, pendulous branches with glossy dark green leaves divided into three to nine oval, 1–2-in. leaflets. Blooms in late summer and fall (sometimes in spring), with white, 3/4-in., bell-shaped blossoms with jasmine fragrance. On mature plants, small red fruits follow flowers. Needs rich soil and frequent feeding. Slowly recovers beauty after cold winters. Blooms attract bees.
