Our 18 year-old specimen is a testiment to the hardiness of this E. Himalayan species. Although it suffered die-back after a severe winter storm brought cold dry winds from the interior followed by heavy wet snow, this evergreen shrub recovered and even bloomed. The fragrant February flowers, emerging from red purple buds, can perfume an entire neighborhood if the temperature and sunlight cooperate. Its semi-glossy dark green leaves are always in fashion.

Late winter.  14 ft. x 5-6 ft.
