Clusters of honey-scented, greenish-yellow flowers will fill the air with their perfume in late winter and early spring. Perhaps less showy than the pink-flowered varieties, it still looks wonderful under-planted with a carpet of buttercup-yellow winter aconites - and the scent is divine! It's a compact, semi- prostrate, evergreen shrub that is perfect for shady areas of a shrub border or woodland garden.
- Garden care: Keep pruning to a minimum since the plant is very susceptible to die-back. Where necessary after flowering lightly trim back to remove misplaced branches and maintain a compact habit.
- Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
