Search Daphne
Gardens exist for three major reasons: to maintain the balance of nature, to feed the body and to please the senses. There is nothing more exotic and pleasurable (well, we could debate that) than arriving at someone’s front door and being overcome by an intoxicating fragrance. The Daphne must take pride of place at the entrance to a home as the powerful and sensual perfume is not only welcoming for guests arriving, but is as delightful for the homeowners, enticing them outdoors. It is the feng shui of fragrance.   The added bonus of the Daphnes is that they are winter flowering and will provide colour and fragrance when much of the garden is dormant. From mid-winter on into spring the shrub produces clusters of small, starry, flowers. Several flower and foliage forms are available and the variety with yellow-edged leaves, 'Variegata' is often hardier and easier to grow.
