Daphne Perfume Princess™ is a unique and enchanting daphne that should be on everyone’s list of ‘must have’ daphnes. It’s the earliest and longest flowering of all daphnes, with one of the sweetest fragrances, and is prized for its profusion of large blush pink (softly fading to white) sweet perfumed clusters of florets with soft citrus undertones. This is not just any ordinary daphne! Daphne Perfume Princess™ offers a progression of large clusters of blooms up to 60cm across along the stem making it a perfect choice to bring cuttings indoors and enjoy the alluringly sweet perfume. It is an excellent performer with upright and slightly spreading attractive evergreen foliage. Positioned in the garden near a window, doorway or path, the sweet scent will add fragrance to your home and garden. Daphne Perfume Princess™ flowers from mid winter to late spring and is perfect for containers and in the garden.
