Daphne Pink Fragrance ('Blapink')  (PBR) (daphne)

Daphne Pink Fragrance (‘Blapink’) (PBR) (daphne) £24.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soil Rate of growth: slow-growing Flowering period: April to October Flower colour: pink-flushed white from pink buds Other features: all parts of the plant including the seed are highly toxic if ingested; contact with the sap may cause skin irritation; the flowers are followed by blackish-purple fruit Hardiness: fully hardy This is a rare beauty, which we got very excited about when we stumbled across it on a buying trip. It is very similar to ‘Eternal Fragrance’ but this wonderful semi-evergreen woodlander has pink-flushed flowers. These appear on new wood, so will often keep on coming from spring to autumn. Like its namesake, the flowers are highly scented, so plant it near a pathway, patio or entrance if you can. Garden care: Keep pruning to a minimum since the plant is very susceptible to die-back. Where necessary after flowering lightly trim back to remove misplaced branches and maintain a compact habit.
