Absolutely heavenly scent! These plants start out a bit slow but once they have established they grow very quickly. At that time they also become quite drought tolerant. The birds love the berries & if you have mulch beneath the plant the dropped berries will sprout. This is a very tough plant with deep, deep, green, glossy leaves. It blooms off & on year round. Trimming is required every 3 mos. or so to keep it in bounds.
This plant is known to be a host of citrus greening but has not been banned from sale in Florida. Here's the official word from the Florida Dept. of Agriculture/Plant Industry Division:

Murraya paniculata is regulated like citrus with Rule/Chapter 5B-62. All propagation is required to be performed in an approved structure. There is not a ban on the sale of it.
