Lusciously fragrant flowers in March, which linger for weeks.  This is prized as one of the earliest blooming and most fragrant shrubs known.  Grows to be a large, sprawling shrub 6′ high and wide, so give it plenty of room.  Flowers best in at least half-sun.

Great article this shrub here, including different ways to prune it into a small tree, espalier, or vigorous shrub.
