Daphne can be deciduous or evergreen shrubs with small, usually very fragrant tubular, 4-lobed flowers, often followed by colourful berries.
Daphne 'Spring Beauty' really is a rare gem and the perfect winter shrub, during the coldest months of the year it will be festooned in blossoms.
Grow in moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, but not dry, soil in sun or part shade. Mulch to keep roots cool. Tolerant of deep shade. Will not tolerate root disturbance and so resents transplanting.
