Edgeworthia

Paper Bush

These remarkable Asian Daphne relative promise an unprecedented late winter flower-fest.

Edgeworthia chrysantha ‘Akebono’ full sun  partial shade

Delivering a late winter visual delight, prominent silky white button-like buds give way to small waxy tubular blooms with luscious tangerine orange shades and a pleasant fragrance. The unique tightset clusters congregate on the tips of erect yet pliable, smooth silver-laced naked branches, which develop in a noteworthy open fashion. Lustrous deep green 4 in. long deciduous leaves arise from the stem apexes. A prized source for high-end paper and a Daphne relation, this Asian native’s slow growing rounded habit enjoys a partially shady somewhat moist sheltered locale, while its exotic flair can be superimposed against a dark backdrop and surrounded by low-lying Epimediums and Sarcococca.

Blooms late February to March

Size: 5' 0"–6' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
