From the Mediterranean. Rounded plant is bulky and dense but has fine-textured foliage. Reaches 5 to 6 ft. high and 4 to 5 ft.wide (as much as 15 ft. by 20 ft. in old age). Glossy bright green leaves are pointed, 2 in. long, pleasantly aromatic when bruised or brushed against. White, sweet-scented, 3/4-in. flowers with many stamens bloom in summer followed by bluish black, 1/2-in. berries.
Takes any soil, but good drainage is essential.
Makes a good informal hedge or screen, requiring little or no pruning; as a specimen shrub, it can be selectively pruned to reveal limb structure. Withstands shearing into formal hedges and topiary.
