That’s right. I received a call on my vacation from my excited dad. He couldn’t wait to tell me that his Edgworthia, I gave him for his birthday this year, was starting to show its buds. He sounded so enthusiatic. Keep in mind, he has just taken a liking to gardening since he has retired. He is, just like me, learning as he goes along. And there is nothing like being given a plant you have never heard of and seeing is show off.
It is the most magical winter plant. Its bare stems and showy, odd blossoms are sure to be a show stopper–in the winter no less.
Here is my Edgeworthia, although now after seeing the blooms I see I got the less than showy kind–less than $20.
I am going to find the Snow Cream–pictured below. That is the really dramatic one. I saw blog partner Chris’s the other day and I was so jealous.
So if you are looking for a unique winter show stopper plant that had my dad calling to share the exciting news, you should grow Edgeworthia.
