Gold Paper Bush

Edgeworthia

Paper Bush

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

Edgeworthia chrysantha ‘Nanjing Gold’ full sun  partial shade

Prized for crafting high-end paper, warm brown-colored naked branches–erect, smooth and thick, yet pliable–congregate in a distinctive open fashion with prominent silky white buttonlike buds at their tips. A late winter bevy of small waxy tubular blooms explodes from unique tightset clusters, delivering a pleasant fresh fragrance and bright gold to creamy yellow shades. Dark green 4 in. long deciduous leaves populate stem apexes. 'Nanjing Gold's slow growing rounded form favors a partially shady somewhat moist sheltered locale and injects exotic panache wherever its planted, especially when positioned near broad-leafed shrubs such as Oakleaf Hydrangeas or Physocarpus 'Coppertina'.

Size: 8' 0" high x 6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
