Edgeworthia hails from the same family as daphnes and shares some of their desirable characteristics while being easier to grow. It is a stout shrub with several widely branched trunks from the base and exceptionally long tropical-looking leaves that are coloured deep green above, grey-green below. The golden yellow fragrant flowers are borne in pendulous clusters in early spring. Best in moist soil and filtered light. A stunning plant all year long.
