Daphne ‘Perfume Princess’ is a delightful evergreen shrub, with larger, non yellowing foliage compared to other Daphne. Flowers can be four times larger than Daphne odora species and have a delicious perfume with sweet citrus undertones. Lilac buds fade to white and open all down the stem intensifying the fragrance.
Grows in sun or shade with low water requirements. Once established requires only occasional deep watering during periods of extended heat. Plant in a well-drained position which is critical for success with any Daphne. For optimum results, lightly trim and feed with a slow release fertiliser in summer to maintain shape and vigor. Tolerant of both acid and alkaline soil types
Makes a stunning low perfumed hedge or border for small gardens, patios and courtyards. Underplant beneath open tree canopies or plant in containers.
