• The Daphnes are Delightful

    3rd February 2013In The GardenStephanie Donaldson

    Three of my daphnes are flowering, or on the point of doing so – D.‘Jacqueline Postil’ has been out for the best part of a month. Rather puzzlingly, Daphne retusa has been flowering in a modest way most of the winter and D.odora ‘Aureomarginata’ is covered in fat pink buds that will burst into flower any day now. I don’t remember D.retusa behaving this way before – very odd.
