Edgeworthia chrysantha, commonly known as ‘Paperbush’, is a deciduous shrub. Edgeworthia begins to form flower buds in late summer each year, overwinter on bare stems that open into bloom from late February to early April. Fragrant flowers appear in clusters on the tips of bare stems before the narrow oval leaves begin to appear. The fragrant scent will help to attract beneficial insects, such as bees, to the garden in early Spring, when not much else is in flower for them to feed on. When in bud, the covering of silky white hairs makes Edgeworthia glisten, as though it is covered in frost.

A great plant for the winter garden, they rarely succumb to pests and diseases, they will thrive in a sheltered spot. 

An interesting fact about Edgeworthia, they are commonly cultivated in Japan for making the paper used in the production of Japanese banknotes.

Visited the Pavilion recently and had a brilliant experience! While the food was lovely, the true star of the show is the staff.
