A gift from my mom – I’d actually asked her to stop by the local nursery just to see if they had any and well, I guess they did (^_^)
I’ve read quite a bit about this shrub and none of it has brought me any closer to understanding just how to care for it. My initial desire to have it was as a fragrant houseplant but I’d read that the sun is what gives the flowers their fragrance. They are hardy to zone 7-8 which is me, 8, so I assume that the right frost would either seriously damage the plant or kill it. bummer.
So, it will reside in a container in dappled light since, as rumor has it, too much sun will burn it. Oh right – also put charcoal in the bottom of the container to keep from salt build up which will yellow and eventually kill the leaves – if they start turning yellow then reportedly, the plant needs a “flush”
We’re working on the floor which is why it looks like a warehouse :)
This planting is in the Flower & Ornamental garden .
