Description Plant Care  Videos Q & A Goes Well With Description

Abeliophyllum distichum is related to the forsythia and are beautiful,arching deciduous shrubs with paired deep green ovate leaves. Producing wonderful racemes of fragrant pretty flowers, borne on the bare stems in late winter or early spring. Before the new leaves form, purplish buds all along the grey naked branches open into small pinky white four-petaled, almond-scented flowers with yellow stamens. It is not fussy about soil conditions but flourishes best in fertile soils. Hardy in most parts of the U.K but in the coldest areas, it is best planted with protection from cold dessicating winter winds, or grow it close to a wall for extra warmth.

In our opinion the white flowered winter Forsythia is pretty essential as a late winter wonder for your garden. When mature sprays of the delicate flowers can be cut and brought inside for their wonderful fragrance!

Plant Care

Happy in most soils. Plant near the house so you can enjoy the late winter blooms and fragrance. Use a good planting compost mixed 50/50 with your soil when planting. For best results topdress with a good organic fertilizer in early spring.

Can be pruned after flowering if required.
