This is a breeding breakthrough and Perfume Princess™ is now a multi award-winning variety – voted by experts ‘in the trade’. A beautiful Daphne with flowers that are 4 times larger than its contemporaries and a divine scent. Daphne Perfume Princess™ is the result of a hybrid between Daphne odora and Daphne Bhoula, combining the strong growth from one with the delectable fragrance from the other and can produce flowers along the length of the stems The earliest and longest flowering Daphne ever bred. The plants are more robust than most other Daphne varieties, so you can easily cut a stem for a vase where the scent will fill a room. Mainly evergreen, the leaves are lustrous and green, so will add structure and form all through the year. It's perfect for a partially shady border, or a woodland garden. Totally winter hardy.
