Fragrant, floriferous and fuss-free with a naturally dense habit.

Semi-deciduous in average winters; may drop all foliage in coldest zones, leafing out again in spring.

Design IdeasPair with dark-foliage plants to showcase the champagne-colored flowers and elegant ivory-edged foliage. Use at the edge of a tree understory, where it will shine in the dappled sunlight, and bask in the gentle fall through winter sun, when the trees are bare. Plant en masse to create a fragrant pathway to a front gate or garden destination. Plant a pair on opposite sides to frame entry steps or a patio door. Situate adjacent to seating areas where the intoxicating, spicy-sweet scent can be enjoyed all spring, through the summer months, and well into fall.
