Daphne odora


Sweet Daphne

A shallow rooted, small evergreen shrub which is very popular for its fragrant flowers which start pink in the bud, and open to white in the winter months. It grows to a height of 1 metre, with a similar spread.


This shrub is useful for its sweet scent in the garden.


Sweet Daphne is suited to fertile, moist, well drained soil. It will do best in partial to full sunlight. No regular pruning is required, although it will benefit if dead and damaged wood is occasionally removed. It can be propagated by cuttings, which can be struck under glass.
