Edgeworthia Chrysantha (Paper Bush)


Edgeworthia Chrysantha (Paper Bush)

Highly scented flowers in late winter


A native to woodlands in the Himalayas and China, this gorgeous plant is closely related to Daphne. It is most highly prized for its flowers, which appear in clusters on the tips of the bare stems, and open in late winter. They have a strong scent which will help attract the toughest, winter insects, and when in bud the covering of silky white hairs make them look as if they are covered in frost. A great plant for the winter garden, they rarely succumb to pests and diseases, but will need a sheltered spot.


  • 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)
