Daphne tangutica


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Daphne is a genus with a justifiable reputation for being finicky to downright contrary. This species is not so and is as amenable as they come. Evergreen shrub with narrow leaves and lots of nicely scented white flowers that are purple-pink on the outside. Blooms in spring and sporadically thereafter into fall. The origins of this particular form is that seed from a good reblooming clone in England was sent to the former proprietor of Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery, Baldassare Mineo (quite a rarity himself) who then shared seed from his plants with us. Is it any better than the typical species which tends to rebloom? We have not grown it long enough to compare but you can't go wrong with this sturdy and rewarding species.
