Daphne Perfume Princess™ is the earliest and longest flowering daphne ever bred – from mid winter to late spring. It covers itself with an astonishing profusion of large soft pink flowers, not just at each branch tip, but also along each stem. Height to 1.5m
Daphne Perfume Princess has that unmistakable, blissful daphne fragrance – but with a citrus undertone – on a bush that’s a great shape with attractive deep evergreen foliage. To top it all off, this daphne is not fussy and will grow almost anywhere and anyhow.
Masses of soft pink flowers are four times larger than a traditional daphne, with added clusters on the stems of mature plants. Flowering mid winter to late spring, there are also spot flowers in summer: a highly fragrant daphne with a citrus undertone.
This daphne isn’t fussy, growing almost anywhere, tolerating cold and hot climates. Plant in Full sun to part shade in well drained soil. It’ll grow in any soil but prefers soils that are slightly acid. If planting in a pot, use a large one and fill it with a premium quality potting mix.
Pop the Princess in a pot near the door so the fragrance can greet you. Plant as an evergreen hedge along the path for year round structure and a seasonal fragrant hit. Tuck it beside a garden seat to create a mid-winter perfumed retreat.
