Edgeworthia is like a Gardenia in February! Its fragrance is very similar to a Daphne but its flowers are yellow, tropical-looking leaves are much larger, and it's deciduous. In North Carolina, Edgeworthia likes a bit of afternoon shade and can handle a good amount of water in well-drained soil. I usually plant mine in areas where hydrangeas grow. Definitely one of my favorite plants and gets me excited for spring when it blooms!
Edgeworthia look nice when drarf evergreen are planted nearby. A few good ones are listed in "goes well with" below.
