Lawrence Crocker Daphne
Excellent in containers, rock gardens, and the front of the border.
The bloom season begins in late spring and continues well into summer, with large clusters of single lavender-pink blooms. Among the most fragrant in all the Daphne family, these flowers dominate the dwarf plant, standing out brilliantly against the glossy dark green foliage.
'Lawrence Crocker' is a cross of D. arbuscula x D. collina, developed at Siskiyou Nurseries in Medford, Oregon (hence its species name) and named for one of the nursery's founders. It is very vigorous in part shade and consistent moisture, and should be mulched heavily in both summer and winter to protect its roots Do not let it dry out, and try not to transplant it once it has become established in the garden. You will find it a slow-growing, mounded plant with tireless bloom strength and lovely evergreen foliage. Zones 6-9.
