Rondeletia amoena

Rondeletia amoena

This early Spring flowering shrub has the sweetest perfume and is always full of bees and honey eater birds. It is tough and hardy and can grow up to about 3 metres but needs to be pruned from when it is quite small to maintain a compact shape. The large heads of pink flowers often weigh down to the ground when it is in flower.
2017 update: I still grow this though I have sold out at present.

  1. I just love this shrub. If you like viburnums then this plant is sure to delight you. It doesn't lose it's leaves and the gorgeous pink scented flowers are a real treat.
