Edgeworthia chrysantha "Gold Rush"
This amazing plant is worth it's weight in gold! It is a member of the daphne family and shares a couple characteristics that make it worth planting in your yard. Winter flowers and extreme fragrance!
I have one planted outside of my office window where it has thrived for the past 5 years. It is out of the east wind in winter and has shown no frost damage at all, though it is borderline tender at zone 7
The flower buds hang down in perfect white bell shapes and are visible as soon as the leaves drop from the plant in fall. The buds offer an attractive feature in the winter garden. Edgeworthia begins to flower in late January and lasts well into early spring, filling the entire yard with fragrance. Our mature shrub is about 7 feet tall and just as wide.
