Abeliophyllum distichum Roseum


Don't miss your chance to purchase this beautiful but rarely offered deciduous shrub. While it is closely related to the common yellow Forsythia, this variety is a lot more subtle. Flowering through winter and early spring, Roseum valiantly adorns itself in a glistening coat of pink-blushed flowers, which smother its bare branches - offering the gardener a delicious rose and orange blossom scent. Preferring fertile, free-draining soil, it is hardy down to -15°c.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
