Daphne Alba
Daphne odora 'Alba'
Daphne flowers possess a magical perfume, miles better than anything that comes in a bottle. Enjoy the scent to the full: plant near a path or doorway, or a window which is often left open. The flowers, produced for a long time in late winter and early spring, can be picked and brought indoors, but be sure to cut them with green stems - cutting back into old wood is not good for the bush.

Extra large white flowers with a hint of pink and oodles of scent. Tidy, rounded bush.

Uses: Gardens, shaded glens, borders, patio pots and indoor posies.
Position: A little sunlight and dappled shade is best. Plant in an acid soil with good moisture retention, though one not inclined toward staying wet. Protect from harsh wind.
Care: A light tip prune from time to time is helpful - picking the flowers in winter achieves this. Dress lightly with an acid fertiliser during spring.
