Stachyurus praecox - Early Stachyurus - Now ONLY £12


  • Stachyurus praecox is a deciduous shrub that is very showy in the early Spring and late Summer. The Early Stachyurus has 10-15cm in length slender-pointed ovate leaves, dropping racemes and 10-12cm in length bell-shaped, pale yellow flowers late Winter to mid-Spring (already visible on the plant in Winter). These are produced before or together with the appearance of young leaves, the flowers diffusing a sweet scent. It often develops an arching habit. As the foliage matures, the petioles redden through the primary vein and the toothed margin of the leaf has a fine defining line of red. In Autumn, the foliage turns to the shades of red to purple. As the flowers fade, small berry-like fruits appear which turn to yellow-red later on. This plant is tolerant to wetter soils and grows best in semi-shade. 

  • 20cm tall, 1 year old plant in an 8cm pot. Can be planted out from mid spring.
