  • Description

    Not a native plant, but adored for early, fragrant blooms and low maintenance. Pruning the plant back once a year after bloom or in winter dormancy is helpful but not necessary.  Does not require fertilizer or irrigation once it is established. If there is a drought during the first season, supplemental water may be necessary.
