Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Baa On Jul 8, 2003, Baa wrote:

A very showy cultivar shrub.

Has very yellow leaves, which turn a greenish yellow in summer and bears pure white, heavily scented flowers.

Flowers April - May

Loves a well drained soil in light shade. The branch tips will often burn in full sun which will deny the garden pleasure of the flowers.

Very easy shrub, prune back the branches after flowering to a strong bud.
