Nanjings Gold Edgeworthia ( Paper Bush )
edgeworthia chrysantha nanjins gold
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, Filling the late-winter garden with intoxicating fragrance, this well-branched shrub displays creamy yellow flower clusters at its branch tips. Spring brings slender blue-green foliage, turning yellow in fall. A fine backdrop in dappled shade gardens.
