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 and the blossom makes this Daphne extra special.
Large, fragrant 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, most divinely scented of all Daphnes.
‘Perfume Princess’ is also a very easy Daphne to grow. Slow growing and compact, it thrives in a wide range of conditions and is even happy in full sun - making it ideal for novice gardeners and the more experienced alike. Evergreen, the lustrous, dark green leaves add structure and form to your borders, and even when not in flower, it’s still a great choice for a large container where space is limited.
Wherever you grow it, make sure that it’s in a place where you can fully enjoy the perfumed fragrance that will fill the air when the plant is in bloom.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot.
