My favourite shrub is flowering at the moment and the scent is just amazing! The rest of the year it is a bit ordinary looking, but I feel it is worth having just for these few weeks when it flowers!

Semi-evergreen Shrub. Flowers April-May. Height 2.5m
For most of the year this is a fairly unremarkable shrub, but when it flowers in April and May, it is the star of the garden. When in bud, the flowers are delicately edged with pink and when open they have the most exquisite scent – it’s a pity it can’t be bottled! Plant near a path or doorway to make the most of the fabulous fragrance.
