CHIMONANTHUS (WINTER SWEET)

 

(D = deciduous leaf losing)

A good winter-flowering shrub providing exquisite fragrance.

Chimonanthus praecox, usually trained against a wall. Its waxy flowers, which are yellow with purple flashes, appear on the branches in winter, often by Christmas. A plant will eventually occupy a space 7 or 8 ft. square. Ordinary soil enriched with compost suits it best.
