 Essentials

  • Deciduous – Can be semi-evergreen in warmer climates
  • Zone hardiness:  5 – 9
  • Grows well in Full-Sun to Part-Shade
  • Grows 5-6 ft tall and wide (dwarf varieties do exist)

Why I love it

  • An early seasonal bloomer with very fragrant, honeysuckle-like blooms
  • Has a very full and bushy arching cottage garden growing style.
  • Very low maintenance though it needs to be pruned in late winter or early spring, as it blooms on new wood.
