Dictamnus albus Burning Bush

Dictamnus albus Burning Bush

A highly desirable plant, not just for the attractive ash-like foliage, but also for the elegant panicles of clear white through to pink flowers borne in summer. The flowers are also popular with honeybees which ensure that the flowers are pollinated, resulting in the unusual winged seedpods that explosively expel their seed. All parts of the plant, particularly the foliage and stems exude aromatic oil reminiscent of lemons, which is not surprising since they both belong to the citrus family. Coming from Greece, it prefers a fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. 90cm (3ft).
