Abeliophyllum distichum

Abeliophyllum distichum

There is only one species in this Korean genus, which belongs to the same family as the common Forsythia, but there is nothing common about this plant. A. distichum is an open, spreading shrub that grows to 3-5ft and produces an abundance of delightfully fragrant, pure white, star-shaped flowers at the very beginning of spring, at least two weeks before Forsythia. The blooms are followed by foliage of a cool bluish green. Branches cut in late winter are easily forced into bloom, and the perfume is much more pronounced indoors. Grow in full sun or partial shade and average soil, and underplant with early-flowering spring bulbs such as Scilla and Muscari.
