Sowing, Seeds, Planting Chimonanthus praecox are best positioned in a warm, sheltered spot, in full sun. It’s a good shrub to plant near a doorway or by a path, to catch the delicious scent as you pass. It’s also good for training against a warm, south-facing wall. Where the extra heat generated will help ripen new growth quicker and increase bud production.
