Winter flowering wonder, Edgeworthia Chrysantha is a bushy deciduous shrub with clusters of small creamy-yellow, highly scented flowers on leafless branches in late winter to early spring.
Edgeworthia Chrysantha, also called the Paper Bush Plant, has cinnamon coloured papery bark with dark green, oval-shaped foliage that emerges after flowering. This beautiful specimen will give the garden eye-catching colour through those cold dark winter months. During the summer months, its large shapely foliage creates a tropical-like effect. In autumn, as the leaves drop off, the elegant and very pretty flower buds emerge offset against the decorative, cinnamon-coloured bark.
Edgeworthia Chrysantha (Paper Bush Plant) will reach a maximum height of 1-1.5m and a maximum spread of 1-1.5m. It likes full sun and partial, dappled shade and any well drained fertile soil.
This is quite a rare plant. Although it provides year–round interest, the fragrance of the flowers in mid-winter and early spring is intoxicating. This together with the beauty of the flowers on the bare, reddish brown bark will brighten up any garden in mid-winter.
