Daphne ‘Eternal Fragrance’ won a gold award in the ‘New Plant’ category of the Salon du Végétal trade show in Angers, France in February this year.
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.
