Banana Shrub is a dense broadleaf evergreen shrub with a rounded habit and narrow dark green leaves that stay green year round.  The name comes from the intense banana fragrance of the creamy yellow flowers with a thin red margin that blooms from early spring into summer.  Flowers best in part shade and rich, moist and well-drained soils.
