Paperbush

Genus: Edgeworthia.

Species: Edgeworthia crysantha.

Edgeworthia crysantha “grandiflora”. This shrub flowers in February/March on bare wood with yellow, pleasant smelling flowers. The Edgeworthia grows to approx 120cm - 150cm in height and only needs to be pruned to retain its shape.
The best moment for this is immediately after flowering. This shrub demands little of the soil.
For centuries,Buddhist in the Himalayas have used the bark of this unique shrub to make paper on which they wrote their holy texts.
