Drimys lanceolata 'Red Spice' (Drimys lanceolata)

For my records. Evergreen with elegant, aromatic foliage & star-shaped yellow flowers. Ht. 150cm. Frost-resistant, prefers a south or west facing spot. Likes a sunny/semi-shaded position. Requires well-draining soil.

Many thanks for the lovely comments on this shrub ... it is still in the pot as the ground is just so wet for planting. Tomorrow may be a sunny day ... time to get planting! :o)
