Multi-stemmed large shrub, during fall and winter white chrysanthemum-like flowers bloom giving off a scent reminiscent of chocolate or freshly baked cookies. Slightly fragrant white daisies with yellow centers are produced in such abundance in late fall and early winter that they turn the whole tree white.
