I've posted this on the Garden Web, but no luck yet. We call this the "Michele" tree as we got a cutting from her garden. In two years and with pruning at the base, it's about 3M tall. I have other cuttings on the go.

It has pointy, glossy, evergreen leaves, tiny white flowers in Spring and Autumn, no smell. Anyone know the name of it? I've searched all my Mediterranean gardening books and find nothing to fit.

Have now had a response from the Garden Web. This lovely easy plant seems to be Myoporum laetum, ngaio tree or lollypop tree, originally from New Zealand.

Looked like Siempre Verde to me.
