STYLE
Design Ideas A much sought after collector's plant for years, this exquisitely fragrant shrub offers tremendous architectural value with its multi-stemmed habit and light, cinnamon colored stems. Rounded form presents an elegant silhouette even when branches are bare. A superb choice for the back of the border, but should be considered for placement along pathways, where visitors can better experience the foliage texture and enjoy 6 to 8 weeks of fabulous, sweet fragrance in late winter, while most of the garden is still sleeping. Related to Daphne, this long-lived and very low maintenance shrub is a collector's dream.
Flower Color Yellow
Foliage Color Silver-green
CARE
Care Provide moist, humus-rich, well drained soil, sheltered from hot afternoon sun. Follow a regular watering schedule during first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide a sheltered site and winter protection in USDA zone 7.
