Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Grandiflora'
- Position: full sun or light dappled shade
- Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: February to April
- Hardiness: frost hardy (will need winter protection in colder areas)
Large rounded heads of small, tubular, bright yellow flowers appear on the bare stems of this deciduous shrub from late winter to spring. They have a good, clove-like scent and will help attract beneficial insects into the garden in winter.
- Garden care: They can tolerate temperatures down to -5C, but in colder areas it is best to plant them against a sunny, south facing wall. Apply a generous layer of mulch in autumn and cut away any damaged or crossing branches in early spring.

My plant was purchased from the For Sale Reduced plants at a garden centre It looked very much a reject, however after some TLC it has just got better and better, and is one I would not be without. It blooms when there is little else in flower, and has a magnificent perfume. Following the flowers we have attractive leaves. I feed this plant in late summer with potash which I am sure helps the flowering. My plant is underplanted with a variety of small bulbs and a small white daphne. I live in the North East of England and it grows well for me.I like to keep the bush 'open' and prune accordingly once flowering is over

Q:Is this shrub suitable for a large tub?Asked on 6/26/2013 by Ilovefrogs from Birmingham
This is lovely shrub which would be better grown in the ground as it can grow to 1.5mx1.5m. If you were to grow it in a container, then it will need to be a large one, and it will need watering and feeding regularly.
Hope this helpsAnswered on 6/27/2013 by Georgina from Crocus
