This is one of my favorites shrubs in the yard and they have been blooming for a couple of weeks. Everyone in the area referred to them as pittosporum, but upon researching them further I discovered another name: Japanese mockorange.
It's easy to understand why they would be called mockorange. The blossoms smell very similar to the flowers on my satsuma orange tree.
A few cuttings of pittosporum, combined with a few of my knock-out roses, make a lovely and very fragrant floral arrangement.
