Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' (daphne)

Daphne bholua ‘Jacqueline Postill’ (daphne) was £39.99 now £34.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soil Rate of growth: slow-growing Flowering period: January and February Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection) Clusters of small, sweetly scented, deep pink buds open in January and February and are followed by rounded, purple-black berries. This choice deciduous or semi-evergreen shrub thrives in a sunny, sheltered position. This plant is very hard to propagate and slow growing, but well worth the patience and investment. Try it in a mixed or winter border or next to a path where its fragrance can be appreciated. Strongly upright in habit, it looks wonderful under-planted with a carpet of magenta or white Cyclamen coum. All parts of the plant are toxic if ingested. The plant in a 10.5cm pot will be approx 15-20cm tall, single stemmed. 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.
