Quick Overview:

‘Jelena’ is an upright cultivar with ascending branches and a spreading habit. It will typically grow slowly to 8-12’ tall, and is noted for its winter-blooming, sweetly fragrant, copper flowers (to 1” long), each having four narrow, ribbon-like, crinkly petals

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best flowering is in full sun. Prefers moist, acidic, organically rich soils. Consistent moisture is best (leaf scorch may occur during periods of summer drought). Shrubs have some tolerance for clay soils as long as drainage is good. Promptly remove root suckers to prevent colonial spread. It is particularly important to remove root suckers rising from below a graft union. Prune in spring after flowering to control shape and size.
