Serissa japonica 'Kowloon'

Serissa japonica 'Kowloon'
tree of a thousand stars; snow-rose

Common name tree of a thousand stars; snow-rose
Family rubiaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z8-11)
Flowers white
Size 24"
Light light shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil, not too dry

Compact evergreen shrub with small variegated leaves. White flowers. After its first mild winter in our garden, with no setback at all, it was hit by the Texas megafreeze in its second winter. That one did more damage, with more than half of the branches killed outright and the rest requiring some time to put out new growth of any substance. But at least it lived.
