Hardiness level Green
Discovered in the Crimea in 1860, this form has dark green glossy foliage and sweetly scented flowers in high summer. A classic subject for deciduous pleaching. Prune in the early spring. Hardy.
Happy in sun to partial shade in moist but well drained soil. Tolerant of both pollution so good for cities and of salt so good near the coast.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
