Back in January, I came across the magnificient Paper Bush in bud on the grounds of the Scott Arboretum, blogged here. Back then it was hung with delicious metallic furry fairy-attracting buds.
I took a walk the other day and was hit by the scent first – a clean sweet just utterly delicious smell that transported me to a magical kingdom where everyone has good intentions. Then I saw the blooms – BOOM – they are huge and almost Seussian!
This member of the Daphne family is high on my list of must-have shrubs!
