    A medium sized shrub, waxy leaves similar to a stephanotis, white periwinkle type flowers, and a strong gardenia/jasmine type scent that can be clearly detected up to 25 metres away.
    Note the wicked thorns! This plant is growing on the Costa Blanca. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Might it be Carissa macrocarpa, commonly known as Natal Plum?

    Absolutely 100% accurate Junglekeeper.A quick search @ http://www.plantzafrica.com/plantcd/carismac.htm
    tells me everything I needed to know and leaves me somewhat mildly embarassed because my father actually came from Natal?.
    Many,many thanks again for your help
