'Tall n Tough' has weathered temperatures down to 0º F without so much as cringing. It is a dense shrub that has deep green, lustrous, oval, evergreen leaves in geometric whorls, and in May and June, large clusters of creamy white flowers with a heady orange-blossom fragrance. This plant will work in a looser landscape of other "geometric" plants, or equally well in a formal landscape — a boundary crosser. Don't let the common name fool you; it is nothing like the Mock Oranges with which you may be familiar. Loved by bees, butterflies, and hummers. Evergreen, 8' tall x 6' wide.

Minimum temperature: 0° F
