|Am trying to identify a type of jasmine shrub I have seen made into a hedge. The leaf is round, the white flower is large and very fragant. Can you help identify the name of this plant?

|Most jasmines are vines and most have divided leaves. Of those that have a shrubby growth habit and undivided leaves, the best match I can make to your description is Jasminum sambac. It's commonly called Arabian Jasmine and produces powerfully fragrant flowers in the summer.
