Daphne odora Rebecca

Discovered in Devon by nurseryman Steven Watson in the 1980s, yet only recently available.
In January clusters of small buds open to reveal highly scented pink flowers through to March.
In our opinion Rebecca is the best Daphne for flower colour and fragrance with an extra wide creamy-yellow margin to the emerald-green leaves.
Prefers well-drained soil in sun or part shade.
Height & spread 1.2m (4').

Hardy perennial. Supplied in 11cm pots.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
