An amethyst bloom with a powerful jasmine scent

Description

The originality of this new variety is the violet-lilac of its flowers that bloom around the end of winter and start of spring. The abundant flowers release a powerful jasmine scent detectable from several metres away. Its other features are typical of the perfumed Daphne: attractive clusters of star-shaped, tubular flowers, a persistent, brilliant green foliage and tough, lanceolate leaves. It forms a small, shrubby bush. To make the most of its scent, it should ideally be placed in a passageway or in the garden at the entrance to the house.

Care

Avoid pruning if possible, or else only lightly at the beginning of summer.
