Stachyurus praecox

Stachyurus praecox

Not a common plant, Stachyurus praecox deserves to be better known for its lovely display of flowers in late winter. It’s a large, deciduous shrub with an arching, spreading habit and deep purplish-red stems. The leaves are pointed, slender ovals. From February to April, 3 ½”/8cm stiff little ‘tails’ of bell-shaped, greenish-yellow flowers hang from the bare branches; these are a valuable nectar source for pollinators. Early Stachyurus can also be wall-trained. It holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
