Daphne 'Pink Fragrance'
Delivery In 4 to 7 Days
What could be better than the sweet, heady fragrance of a daphne in the garden! Recently introduced to UK gardens, this daphne is a superb alternative to the popular 'Eternal Fragrance' and will provide you with flowers for months on end– often right up to autumn. 'Pink Fragrance's' perfumed blooms are produced in abundance from April until October every year and being a compact and slow-growing variety' it's perfect for smaller gardens or for growing in a container on your decking or patio. One of the remarkable things about this beautiful semi-evergreen is that rather unusually for a daphne, it produces flowers on new growth, meaning the lovely pink blooms just keep on coming right through the summer. Grow it in a pot and place on the patio or near a garden path so you can fully enjoy the delightful scent. Height and spread 90 cm (3ft). Supplied approx. 20 cm tall in a 9cm pot.
- Grown for their beautiful and intensely fragrant blooms, daphnes are best planted near paths and doorways or at the front of borders where it is easy to enjoy their delicious fragrance when in flower.
- Plants will thrive in a sunny or part-shaded location in fertile, well-drained soil. They don't like dry roots, so water regularly and deeply.
- Daphne will establish best if planted in the spring when the soil is warm – March/April and Sept/Oct.
- Dig a hole twice the width of the rootball. Sprinkle in a handful of blood, fish and bone and work into the ground.
- If your soil is heavy, add plenty of well-rotted compost to the area and dig it in well. Horticultural sand/grit added to the mix is also beneficial.
- Place the plant into the hole, backfilling so that it is at the same depth as was in the pot. Fill around the rootball and firm the soil down gently but firmly.
- Water well.
- Grafted plants should be planted with the join a couple of centimetres below the soil level.
- Where necessary after flowering, lightly trim to remove misplaced branches and maintain a compact habit; otherwise, a quick clear-up of fallen leaves will suffice.
April - October
