Gold for Daphne ‘Eternal Fragrance’

This delightful plant was one of 25 entered into the ‘Innovert’ competition and was given the top prize.

Bred in the UK by Robin White, ‘Eternal Fragrance’ is an extremely fragrant, semi-evergreen variety with compact growth. It’s perfect for containers and, placed by a door, its intense fragrance greets you as you walk by.

Daphne ‘Eternal Fragrance’ grows to about 90cm and flowers on new growth, giving a seemingly never-ending supply of white flowers.

Available online from Thompson & Morgan as potted plants, ‘Eternal Fragrance’ is usually sent to customers in spring, ready to plant into frost-free conditions. It’s relatively easy to grow too – once established it only needs the occasional tidy to remove damaged stems and any that spoil the shape of the plant.

      Hi A.R. Stewart-Sant,

      Thank you for your comment. The Daphne ‘Eternal Fragrance’ can take betwwen 5-10 years to grow half to one metre. This is a lengthy timespan but ver worth it. I hope this answers your query but please do not hesitate to contact me further. Kind regards, Wendie

  2. If I plant it in a container outside is it hardy

  3. Very useful information. Nice to know it can be planted in a pot, always thought Daphne’s prefered to be in the ground because of their long roots.
