Daphne bholua Jacqueline Postill has sweetly fragrant lilac-pink and white flowers in late winter, followed by black berries. This is undoubtedly one of the most fragrant plants in the winter garden, but it is rare and sought after as it is extremely hard to propagate. Unsurprisingly, in addition to plant lovers, like the other daphnes this plant attracts bees.
This is a mostly evergreen medium-sized shrub of erect habit with narrow leathery, glossy leaves. Plant it in a sheltered position facing south or west. Choose somewhere you will walk past often to catch the uplifting scent.
