Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
Starry white blooms emerge on naked stems from as early as February, filling the cold winter air with a beautiful fragrance. Closely related to Forsythia, Abeliophyllum distichum is a deciduous shrub with lax, open growth that makes a handsome wall shrub or free standing specimen. Throughout summer this White Forsythia gives centre stage to showier shrubs before reclaiming the limelight in autumn when its foliage turns rich purple. Unusual and rarely seen, Abeliophyllum is best planted close to a door or pathway where its fragrance can be best appreciated. Height and spread: 150cm (59").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
