    Design IdeasThis is a favorite old-fashioned shrub or small tree grown for its sweetly fragrant flowers. Treat it as a background for the perennial border or group with more spectacular deciduous flowering shrubs. May work well as foundation planting and along fencelines where summers aren't too hot. Consider it a requirement in a country or Victorian garden. Makes a healthy, dense and wonderfully scented screen or privacy hedge.
  • Care
    Care Information
    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.
