Small rounded shrub.
Sun to light shade with adequate soil moisture. Light shade in the winter is beneficial. (The north side of a building works well.) Soils should be loose, moist, well drained and near neutral pH. Supposedly Daphne is harder to grow than Kalmia or visa versa. Daphne wins as the most difficult!
Specimen plants that are short lived. Also grown in rockeries.
Pale green. Alternate, oblanceolate, entire, 1 to 1.75 inches. Green above and glacous beneath.
Clustered at the end of branches, white, nicely fragrant. Flowers are most abundant in May and June but substantial flowering occurs throughout the summer and up to frost.
Drupe, yellow brown, black, or red.
Cuttings of all Daphne species are known to be tempermental. Try an IBA of 3000 ppm and place in peat:perlite mix under mist.
