The winter flowering daphne is Daphne Odora, a fragrant low-growing plant and the most popular of all daphnes. Both pink and white flowering varieties are available, and this is regarded as the best winter flowering shrub of all. It's rosy/pink buds open to reveal splendid, waxy, white to pink to purple flowers that have a heavenly fragrance. They grow well in the garden and can also be grown in pots. This plant hates root disturbance so choose the spot carefully and plant it young. Feed with a light sprinkling of blood and bone every two or three months in the growing/flowering season.

Soil: Daphne like a humus-rich, well-drained, acidic soil. If you have heavy clay soil, add compost or bark before planting to help with drainage.
Conditions: Full sun to light shade that has protection from the hot afternoon sun. Best in cool to temperate climates - frost tender.
Size: Height 2m x width 1.5m
