Daphne 'Perfume Princess' ™

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 flowers. This is not just any ordinary Daphne! Daphne 'Perfume Princess'™ offers a progression of large blooms 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 winter to late spring and is perfect for containers and in the garden.

  • Masses of large flowers open blush pink and fade to white 
  • Highly perfumed - with soft citrus undertones
  • Long flowering season
  • Intense clusters of blooms that can also bloom down the stems
  • Considerably more adaptable to difficult conditions than many other daphnes and blooming shrubs. It tolerates a broader range of temperatures - both cold and hot - and bounces back quickly from a hard cut-back when needed, and it establishes itself in new surroundings with a minimum of fuss
  • Height 150cm - Spread 100cm
