Daily Flower Candy: Sinocalycanthus raulstonii ‘Hartlage Wine’

Now you’re past the tongue-twister of a name, you can enjoy the waxy, claret-coloured flowers of this unusual shrub. I first discovered Sinocalycanthus raulstonii ‘Hartlage Wine’ at Felley Priory on a rainy day last year, but it’s since cropped up again and again, most recently on the Hillier Nurseries stand at Chelsea. Although hardy, it appreciates a little protection from the wind and decent, humus-rich soil. If you can manage that, the reward will be long lasting, lightly-scented flowers and attractive yellow autumn foliage.
