Daphne odora – Winter Daphne

This is a spreading, slow-growing, evergreen shrub growing to about 1M tall. Fabulously scented, waxy, white flowers from white buds, cover this bush in early spring.

Daphnes do well in Karin’s garden and even a single sprig as a cut flower will fill a room with scent. They are not long lived and are not easy to propagate, but other strongly scented flowers at this time of year are really quite hard to find. Make sure to plant your next one before the current one senesces.
