This is one interesting shrub that I do not know of. The bell-shaped flowers have a unique enclosed bud with a purplish tip that opens up to release a light scented fragrance.

NB on 25 May 13: This plant is known as Portlandia grandiflora (Common Name: Bell Flower, Glorious Flower of Cuba, Tree Lily; Family: Rubiaceae).
