This fantastic new Daphne originated from a private breeder in New Zealand and has just won 'Plant of the Year' award in Australia and it's perfectly suited for British gardens too. It's arguably the best Daphne yet being both earlier and longer flowering flowering than other kinds. Its the blossom itself of course that makes this Daphne so special. Flowers open from dark pink buds into large clusters up to 5cm across- as much as four times the size of regualr Daphne - a 3 year old plant can have as many as 10 clusters along each stem.
Even more than the size of blooms it's the fragrance that reall sets this plant apart - it's probably the sweetest scented of all Daphnes. Combine this with the size and long lasting nature of the flowers and it's easy to appreciate that Perfume Princess is rated as one of most fragrant of all garden plants.
This is also a very easy Daphne to grow, thriving in a wide range of conditions and is even happy in full sun. Evergreen, it looks lovely in the border even when not in flower and due to it's compact nature its a natural choice for a large container. Whevever you grow it make sure its aplace you frequent so that you can enjoy the fantastic fragarnce that will fill the air around when the plant is in bloom!
