Report a problem

This densely branched, rounded evergreen shrub grows in a broadly spreading form to 4'. The heavenly scented, deep, purple-pink with white flowers emerge in early spring in clusters amidst the 3-4" glossy, leathery, deep green leaves. Bloom period is long. This daphne does well in mostly shade and should always be protected from hot afternoon sun. It also likes a little lime at planting time in acid soils.

More powerfully fragrant than all the daphnes, with a spicy undertone (Genders); in a warm location, this 3' EG can produce its deep-pink flowers all winter. PSh/Med(notdry)/GdDrain
