Citrus japonica - kumquat

APPEARANCE : This medium-sized shrub has glossy leaves tight in habit and evergreen foliage. Ideal used as an evergreen hedging plant. Scented white flowers in spring and summer are followed by small oval or rounded orange fruit with a tart tangy taste;
USE FOR : Excellent hedging plant. Site where the scented flowers can be enjoyed. Clip to a hedge or use as a screen.
CLIMATE : Fairly cold tolerant, though protect from frost.
PLANTING : Plant in a full sun to partly shaded position in well drained soil. A sunny position will result in a heavier, more prolonged flowering season. Supposedly more cold tolerant than oranges, mandarins, limes, though they fruit better in warmer regions - test this out in your own garden.
CARE : Prune after flowering to promote a dense growth habit and more prolific flowering during the following season.
MATURE HEIGHT & WIDTH:  2-3 m x 3 m. Keep at desired height with regular pruning.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
You can see an example in the image gallery.
