Sweetly scented and highly fragrant, creamy yellow, bell shaped flowers appear on bare, light brown stems in the middle of Winter. The glossy, lanceolate leaves on the Chimonanthus praecox turn a pure yellow in the Autumn. On hot Summer days, the Wintersweet's deep green, leathery leaves release an aromatic scent of a mixture of cinnamon and cloves. Our Winter Sweet is a medium sized (2m tall) shrub, ideal for Winter borders and looks stunning against a natural wall or even in a large pot on the patio. It is best to keep it close to a path or entrance of the house for you to fully appreciate its strong fragrance!
