Pittosporum


This evergreen bush was in full bloom everywhere I went in the cities. But it was especially fragrant in the gardens of Jerusalem, where its exceptional aroma, reminiscent of both orange blossom and jasmine scented the air with its uplifting and delicate scent.

And, needless to say I suppose, what a pretty flower too :) I wonder now if I can get those to grow in the grey Pac NW? Hmm.... I need to ask around, heh.

Katie, I think this bush is originally from Japan, and here in grey Vancouver similar bushes grow as well. But the flowers look different and are not as fragrant... They are now in bloom here in Vancouver as well, and have a much less heady and noticeable scent, but it's very pleasant.
