DAPHNE

Sorry, but the plant you were looking for isn't available this year. Please try these alternatives.
Daphnes require good, rich, loamy soil and good drainage is essential for success.

Genus of about 100 species of deciduous, semi-evergreen or evergreen shrubs from Europe, northern Africa and temperate and subtropical Asia.

Their main attraction is the clusters of usually heavily scented flowers. Some have variegated leaves. They can be grown in borders, rock gardens and in a woodland setting.

The "Eternal" series are a result of a successful 30 year breeding programme to produce a free-flowering Daphne more tolerant of a wide range of soil and garden conditions.

All are attractive to bees and other insects, the earlier bloomers being particularly useful.
