Our Edgeworthia has come into beautiful, fragrant bloom in the spring garden.
I’ve updated last fall’s post on planting the shrub to include new photos of it in bloom. This step by step description on planting a shrub may be helpful to you if you’re planning to add shrubs to your garden this spring.
