Freylinia lanceolata

DESCRIPTION

Very hardy, large, fast growing, evergreen, graceful shrub with lanceolate leaves and bunches of creamy-yellow, tubular flowers, which are very fragrant and bloom for most of the year. The flowers smell of honey and attract a myriad of butterflies and other insects. It blooms profusely in late winter when little else is flowering, but does flower on and off for most of the year. It grows well in a sunny garden although it does tolerate partial shade.

LANDSCAPING USES
It can be clipped into a formal hedge or just to keep its size under control.
