Spacing: 10 - 12 feet.
Depth: Plant in an open but not exposed site to help protect against strong Winter winds and deep freezing that may damage the early blossoms.
Spread: 8 - 10 feet.
Comments: Exceptionally fragrant blooms in very early Spring. A more than welcome site after a long Winter under a blanket of white snow. Plant as a large shrub or small tree where you can enjoy the sweet fragrance while in bloom. The gentle lleaves will provide shade during the Summer months. The leaves turn a golden-yellow for a warm Fall color.
