Cream de Mint Mock Orange

This is an excellent small shrub, a Monrovia product, that even tolerates full desert sun. It seems to be as hardy as it's close relative, deep green Wheeler's Dwarf / Dwarf Pittosporum, but it's much more attractive. Monrovia's site offers more details.

Bought plants online and picked them up

They had exactly what I wanted and it was so quick and easy to pick them up. The man that helped was wonderful and walked my plants out to the car, half the parking lot away.
