Edgeworthia Is a Winter Star

DrPulte_Moderator | Posted in Southeast Gardening on

Edgeworthia (Edgeworthia chrysantha, Zones 7–10) – I am compelled to say the flowers that bloom from midwinter to midspring are my favorite part of this plant. Their fragrance is captivating and is often noticed before they are seen. Edgeworthia is hardy for almost our entire region when it’s sited properly. Even in a protected Zone 6, it is possible to grow it. Spring planting seems to be the trick to getting it off to the right start. Who is growing Edgeworthia in their garden?

    I have an edgeworthia in a large perennial border along with hydrangeas, mahonia, and small boxwood. The edgeworthia is the first to bloom followed closely by the mahonia. I plan on adding another edgeworthia to the garden in a different location as it is an unusual plant that brings me joy.

      I have started to collect several cultivars. They all have slight differences.
