Tough and adaptable evergreen shrub to 6' or a little more that is thankfully deer resistant.  It is good thing being in the Olive family (Oleaceae) as deer hate olives.  The deer in Port Townsend are approaching biblical locust proportions and no doubt there will soon be "wildlife" tours in town.  Very fragrant white flowers are a beacon of hope in the face of relentless herbivory.
