Daphne's fragrant lilac blooms elevate gardens to sensory havens. Unlock the secrets to nurturing this aromatic shrub, adding an irresistible charm to your outdoor space.
Delightful little slow-growing shrubs, Daphne are loved for their attractive foliage (many are evergreen), the exotic fragrance that some of the most popular varieties boast, and their decorative non-edible fruits. Needing little pruning, Daphne are eager to brighten up walkways and borders, or even stand alone as eye-catching container plantings. Many Daphne bloom in late winter or early spring, a trait that's given them the names Winter Daphne or The Romantic Plant, for the blooms that appear near Valentine's Day!
