Chimonanthus Praecox (Wintersweet)


Chimonanthus Praecox (Wintersweet)

Deliciously scented winter flowers


Small, sweetly scented, sulphur-yellow flowers, stained purple inside appear on bare branches throughout the winter months. This vigorous shrub will ususally take a few years to start to flower, but they are well worth the wait and they will make a lovely specimen plant for a sunny, well-drained mixed or winter border. Try to plant it close to a house entrance or path where its scent can be appreciated. Highly prized by floral arrangers, a stem of these unusual, bowl-shaped blooms makes a wonderfully fragrant indoor display.
