Deciduous, slow-growing shrub, to 5-6 ft tall, with winter blooms on handsome, bare stems. Sun to part shade with plentiful summer water. Frost hardy in upper USDA zone 7.

Intriguing Asian deciduous daphne relative that makes a rounded 5' shrub. The true glory of this plant come to the fore in early spring as golfball sized clusters of small deep orange flowers appear at the ends of the naked branches. We're all for anything that blooms early!

Orange-red flowers in early spring similar to E. ‘Red Dragon’. This form has a collar of leaves around the flowers in summer. Looks like E. ‘Red Dragon in every other way.
