The Plants

Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill'


Photo of Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill'


Clusters of small, sweetly scented, deep pink buds open in January and February and are followed by rounded, purple-black berries. This choice deciduous or semi-evergreen shrub thrives in a sunny, sheltered position. This plant is very hard to propagate and slow growing, but well worth the patience and investment.
