Untroubled by pests and diseases.

Flowers are followed by urn-shaped fruits in fall.
Redolent of cloves and sweet fruit, this handsome native shrub replaces the traditional deep pink blooms with those of softest yellow, abundantly borne along long stems that are superb for cutting. The flowers are followed by urn-shaped brown fruit that matures in fall and remains on the plant all winter, long after the large 6-inch leaves have turned bright golden and fallen. Untroubled by pests or diseases, this dense, bushy shrub is ideal for the foundation, near the patio or other heavily trafficked area, and along the driveway, where its fragrance can be shared with the entire garden. Highly recommended. Zones 4-8.
