Michelia, Coco and there's six or seven of these shrubs in the front gardens, and this one in the back (where I spend most gardening and leisure time). This plant has most recently become recognized as a Magnolia type.
Grow to 3 x 2 metres with fabulous perfume in the afternoons when the flowers seem to open further like this one. In this climate they seems to flower continuously year round.

picked for a vase indoors..delightfully perfumed freesias grow under the lime tree. A pair of doves nesting nearby are usually sitting amongst them soaking up the sunshine.
