It’s that time of year- fragrant Daphne is here.
We have lots of these old-fashioned beauties in stock right now, good-sized plants just loaded with flowerbuds.
I can’t get enough of the potently fragrant flower clusters, reminiscent of citrus blooms. Mmmmm- heavenly! I cut new bouquets every few days, putting them where the scent can be enjoyed the most. I’ll even bring some along when I go to visit friends and neighbors- perfect little hostess gifts.
Deer resistance. This is one plant that is reliably impervious to deer, regardless of where you live.Yay! No spray!
Evergreen. The glossy leaves are showy on their own, true green with nicely contrasting cream margins. Each leaf is somewhat different than the next, so you’ll see variations in the pattern of color.It really pops next to deeper tones- I have it against a dark wooden fence.
Daphne is a moderate grower, topping out at about 4’X4′ over time. It does well in a fair amount of shade, but also in a fair amount of sun, so where you plant will perhaps depend more on daphne’s water needs than the sun exposure. I have mine planted beside my front walkway, to best enjoy the delicious fragrance.
We have a great selection of big healthy daphne plants right now, so stop by.
