Powerfully Fragrant!

A compact Rock Daphne
Every garden deserves Rock Daphne, and Wilhelm Schacht is such a generously reblooming cultivar that if only one variety could be selected, it would have to be this rich purple-pink beauty. Ultra-fragrant and quite easy to grow, it is a shrub to treasure.

First in spring and then again in early summer, masses of magenta-pink to plum-purple blooms appear in great clusters above small, rounded, glossy green leaves. Wonderfully fragrant, they fill the garden with a rich scent you will anticipate with delight each year.

Plant Wilhelm Schacht near benches and paths in the garden, and beneath windows -- anywhere you know you will be at close range with that incredible fragrance!

Petite yet very full and well-branched, this evergreen shrub is tidy and symmetrical, needing no pruning. And that's a good thing, because it flowers first on old wood (spring) and then again on new growth (summer), so if you do have to trim it, prepare to sacrifice a season of flowers. The foliage stays fresh and green throughout winter, adding to Wilhelm Schacht's appeal.

This shrub reaches only 18 to 24 inches high and wide, yet it has a much larger garden presence than its size would indicate! Vigorous and mounding, it is a happy cross of D. collina x D. petraea. Give it full sunshine and very rich, well-drained soil for best flowering. Highly recommended. Zones 6-9.
