Daphne are prized for their amazing winter scent and their pink flowers that open from late February to April, filling the garden with early perfume and colour. This selection called Aureomarginata also have lovely gold-edges contrasting deep green leaves, providing colour interest all year round.
Grow them in big pots, or deep, fertile soils. They are a slow growing evergreen shrub, which will only reach 1.5M tall in 10 years or so. They need little pruning or maintenance. Our stock is almost 3 years old, and is well-rooted and branched, at about 20-25cm tall. Daphne are very difficult to propagate from, and slow growing to start, so are often very expensive but we have managed to secure a very good deal with this specialist grower, and pass on these great savings!
