Murraya paniculata

Murraya, Orange Jessamine, Mock Orange


A large evergreen shrub with a dense, twiggy, habit. The glossy, small leaves are lime-green when new and mature to a dark green. Highly fragrant, ‘orange blossom’ scented, small white flowers appear during Spring/late Summer/early Autumn and intermittently throughout the year. Murraya prefer a position in full sun, with a humus enriched soil and good drainage. A quick growing plant it is a good alternative to Buxus as a hedge and requires a light prune 2-3 times a year during Spring and Summer, and following flowering in Autumn, to maintain a tidy habit. It can also be grown as a multi-trunked small tree, with the removal of lower branching.
