Daphne bholua 'Spring Herald'

When this daphne comes into flower you know that spring is on its way! Clusters of deliciously scented creamy white flowers emerge from sometimes delicately blushed buds adorning the ends of the branches any time from midwinter onwards into spring filling the air with their delightful perfume.

Once established it can flower for a long period, owing much to its parentage being a cross between the ever popular Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' known for its wonderful flowers and more upright habit and Daphne acutiloba 'Fragrant Cloud' which carries spicily scented white flowers for a long period. Occasionally the flowers 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. Try it in a mixed or winter border or next to a path where its fragrance can be appreciated. Rounded and more compact in habit than 'Jacqueline Postill' it also looks wonderful under-planted with a carpet of magenta or white Cyclamen coum.

Supplied in approx 1-2 litre containers.
