A rare and most attractive evergreen shrub. Carpenteria is excellent for growing against a sunny wall and has cup-shaped, fragrant white flowers in early and mid-summer. It is hardy, but should be out of strong or drying winds and protected from severe frosts - therefore best in a sheltered spot facing south or west. The very fragrant flowers are similar to an Anemone, and the glossy leaves are attractive in their own right. Plant in full sun in well-drained but not dry soil. Little pruning necessary, but remove oldest shoots from the base if a plant needs rejuvenation. Size when grown: 150 cms high x 150 cms wide. 3 Litre pot.
