Description
Daphne is prized by gardeners for its flowers and fragrance! Clusters of purple-pink buds burst open in early spring to release their exquisite, sweet perfume. The starry blooms are borne at the stem tips against a backdrop of glossy, evergreen foliage. Daphne odora 'Sweet Amethyst' is a particularly pretty cultivar, with a slow growth rate and attractive rounded habit, making it well suited to containers or narrow borders. Height: 1m (39"). Spread: 1.5m (59").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Pot up Daphne plants and grow them on in frost free conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting in their final positions. Transplant Daphne plants into borders and containers outdoors in moist, fertile, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Choose a position in sun or semi shade. When growing in containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Daphne resents root disturbance so try to avoid this when transplanting as this may delay plant establishment.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, Daphne plants require only occasional attention. Pruning Daphne is best kept to a minimum, removing only occasional damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in summer after flowering. Caution: All parts of Daphne are toxic if eaten and contact with the sap may irritate the skin and eyes.
