Daphne Perfume Princess (PBR) is a brand new variety bred for its exceptional fragrance that will fill the garden during those dull early months from January until March. Bred from a cross between Daphne odora and D. bholua, it has larger flowers than both its parents and once established they are produced in quantity. This is a choice shrub best planted close to a doorway or window where the scent may be enjoyed.
This is an exciting new shrub of modest proportions eventually growing to 1.5 metres high by 1 metre wide. Grow them in pots or mixed borders in sun or partial where the lustrous (mostly) evergreen foliage will bring form and structure to the winter garden. Cut branches are ideal for flower arrangements and will fill the room with their scent.

Daphne Perfume Princess grows best in fertile and well drained soil in full sun, partially shaded borders and the woodland garden. They also make excellent container specimens. Pruning is not normally necessary except to remove dead or diseased branches. Like all Daphne, Perfume Princess shrubs appreciate a generous mulch of well rotted compost in early Spring.
