Chinese Paper Bush (Yellow Daphne)
Origin: Woodlands of the Himalayas and China. Very fragrant Daphne-like yellow to cream flowers about 1.5 cm long in late February before leaves appear. A much sought after collector's plant for years, this exquisitely fragrant shrub offers tremendous architectural value with its multi-stemmed habit and light, cinnamon colored stems.
Rounded form presents an elegant silhouette even when branches are bare.
A superb choice for the back of the border, but should be considered for placement along pathways, where visitors can better experience the foliage texture and enjoy 6 to 8 weeks of fabulous, sweet fragrance in late winter, while most of the garden is still sleeping.
