Hardy Fragrant Edgeworthia (Red Dragon) 13cm Pot
An absolute gem of a winter flowering plant that's little seen but is a real strong performer. Not grown widely enough, this new release 'Red Dragon' adds an amazing new colour for winter gardens
In late winter and early spring, before much colour at all (even before daffodils.) it produces intriguing red and orange lightly scented flowers, smothering bare stems as the flowers are produced before the leaves.
The eye-catching flowers are typical of Edgeworthia with their mass of tubular shaped blooms that create a sphere of flora, but their white tubes' open out into bright red flowers the contrast is really quite astonishing. Its vibrant flowers attract winter pollinators out in the chilly winter weather and the seductive fragrance is a delight for all to enjoy.
It is a relative of the Daphne, sharing it's preference for cool, lightly shaded spots and is very hardy, requiring little or no maintenance. It will surprise you every winter for years to come.
