Abeliophyllum distichum is sure to be the talking point of any garden, be it a cottage, exotic or scented setting. The unusual hardy shrub provides year-round interest, beginning in February when it produces pure white flowers. These blooms exude a sweet fragrance, which is sure to bring joy to even the dullest of winter days. In the summer, this White Forsythia's understated, green foliage looks great when grown up walls or fences, although its open growth also makes for a good specimen plant. The deciduous shrub comes into its own in the autumn, when its leaves take on a rich, purple colour before shedding in order to begin their captivating cycle again in the spring. Height: 1.5m (4'11"); Spread: 1.5m (4'11").
