The pittosporum in my yard are blooming and it smells incredible...to me! This shrub is an excellent choice for island landscaping. It can grow well over six feet tall or be kept pruned back for a more compact appearance.
Sometimes called Japanese Mock Orange, the scent resembles that of sweet orange. Some people find the fragrance too heavy. Me, on the other hand, I could stand in the yard and take deep breaths of it all day long!
My name is D.J. A few years ago I moved to one of the most beautiful places in the world--Pensacola Beach, Florida. I love exploring the beach, documenting its changes with my photos, volunteering to help our sea turtles, attending concerts on the beach in the summer, and participating in many of the events we have throughout the year. I also enjoy sharing my photographs with you so that you can appreciate the beauty of our very special island.
