My Edgworthia chrysantha is in full flower now,
and has flowered a full month before it flowered last year. Of course, we have had a very mild winter again, and this is probably the reason. Although the
foliage is unremarkable when it appears in April, this is a wonderful shrub, which flowers on bare stems, with clusters of yellow flowers which are very furry,
almost like white felt, on the outside. This is the plant whose stems are often used bleached in flower arrangements, especially Ikebana, and are known as
Mitsumata.
