Features

notes
Daphne Summer Ice is a mound forming, compact shrub which produces charming, star-shaped, waxy flowers that last from late spring until early autumn, if planted in a sheltered position. The flowers of this variety are white, flushed with pink, and are particularly highly prized for their remarkable scent, while the edges of the leathery green leaves are lined with cream.
Insights

Plant this Daphne in a sheltered spot by the door or gate where you will pass by often and linger awhile for the pure joy of the scent. Unsurprisingly, this semi- evergreen shrub also attracts bees and other native pollinators.
