Eternal Fragrance Daphne
Blooms on both new and old growth, giving you MONTHS of heavenly scent.
This shrub is the ideal size for every setting from fancy containers to use in the border, the foundation, as edging, or even as a low hedge. It remains evergreen above zone 6, and is well-branched and bushy, for a full, lush look. And if you live in a southern portion of zone 5, you can probably grow 'Eternal Fragrance' with just some extra winter protection (such as a thick mulch). Don't miss out on this spectacular shrub!
Because 'Eternal Fragrance' blooms on both old and new wood, if you get late spring frosts that kill off those first buds, you'll still get a full season of bloom in late summer and early fall. You just can't beat that for flower power!
Daphne thrives in full sun in the north, light shade farther south. It appreciates good, well-worked garden soil or premium potting mix, reaching 2 to 3 feet high and wide. A truly beautiful flowering shrub, 'Eternal Fragrance' is also one of the hardest-working, setting masses of bloomclusters month after month. No other Daphne can boast this kind of strength! Find a place for it this season, and enjoy it for years to come. Zones 6-9.
