Murraya or Orange Blossom is now in bloom in my garden.

This evergreen shrub from south-east Asia grows to around 3m (10′) tall. Its genus name commemorates Dr. Johann Murray, an eighteenth-century Swedish botanist. Murrayas, along with such plants as choisya and citrus, belong to the Rutaceae family, which explains why their creamy white flowers smell just like orange blossom. The flowers are produced in abundance in spring then again in late summer or early autumn, but they also tend to appear after heavy rain. The plant has a dense, twiggy habit and glossy, dark green foliage, and makes an excellent privacy screen or hedge. Murrayas grow best in warm climates from Sydney to Perth and areas north.

    Lovely poem, Irina, and lovely orange blossom, too. I remember from last year how you couldn’t wait for the mellower days of autumn to arrive. We’re waiting for spring’s warmth to arrive over here. 🙂

  3. Nice poem, nice article. One of my favourite flowers, along with Aster and Plumeria. : 0
