Ylang Ylang shrub. Not everybody can grow Cananga odorata, Ylang-Ylang Tree - fast growing and pretty big. With the Desmos chinensis, a small relative you get that intense fragrance but in a plant that can be kept around 3 to 4 feet. It is a better choice for those with limited space and for those in cold areas that will need to protect tropical plants in the winter and otherwise would have a hard time growing the full size Ylang-Ylang.
