Daphne Odora (Daphne)


Daphne Odora (Daphne)

Wonderful in the woodland


Lustrous, deep green leaves provide a handsome silhouette throughout the year, but it is for the small clusters of highly scented flowers that this rounded, evergreen shrub is most highly prized. Appearing in mid-winter, they open from purple-pink buds to reveal their pale pink petals, which usually have a richer pink reverse. Plant it somewhere that you pass-by regularly to make sure you can enjoy their delicious scent.
