Edgeworthia chrysantha ‘Nanjing Gold’
at Digging Dog

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'.

Blooms mid-February–March.

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

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
