This fantastic new Daphne originated from a private breeder in New Zealand and has just won the 'Plant of the Year' award in Australia but is perfectly suited for British gardens too!
Arguably the best Daphne yet, it’s both earlier and longer flowering than other varieties but it’s really the blossom itself that makes this Daphne so special. Flowers open from dark pink buds into large clusters growing up to 5cm across- as much as four times the size of a regular Daphne - a 3-year-old plant can have as many as 10 clusters along each stem!
Aside from the size of its blooms, the mesmerising fragrance ‘Perfume Princess’ produces really sets this plant apart - it's undoubtedly the sweetest scented of all Daphne’s!
‘Perfume Princess’ 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 its compact nature, it’s a natural choice for a large container where space is limited in the border. Wherever you grow it make sure it’s a place you frequent so that you can enjoy the perfumed fragrance that will fill the air when the plant is in bloom!
