Description

This deciduous shrub or small tree has abundant, fragrant, densely-clustered, dark purple-pink flowers, which open in late spring before the leaves appear. When they finally unfurl, the large heart-shaped leaves are tinted red-purple.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
