Hi All,
One of the plants i've inherited in my new garden is this shrub, 3ft tall, small green leaves getting lighter further up the branch. What i find intersteing is that if you snap a leaf, it smells of something like a cross between coriander and black pepper?? And quite pungent! Any ideas? Thanks in advance, C

Hello Camellia. Looks to me like Choysia ternata. Possibly Sundance.
