This stunning member of the daphne family is one of our most prized plants in the garden. All summer, the 8' tall x 8' wide umbrella-shaped clump, supported by a smooth, brown trunk, is adorned with plumeria-like leaves. The foliage drops in mid-December to reveal both the wonderful bark and the large, silvery flower buds. The flower buds open steadily from mid-January to early April, producing an overwhelmingly fragrant display of pendent, golden yellow flowers. Edgeworthia chrysantha is much more winter hardy (below 0 degrees F) than Edgeworthia papyrifera and much easier to grow. In 2007 we finally named the clone we selected for large foliage and flowers and had sold without a cultivar name for over a decade.
