How do I care for my Daphne mezereum 'Rubra'?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 09 December 2014 03:01 PM

The Daphne mezereum Rubra is a cottage garden favourite which explodes into bloom in late winter, its bare branches becomming smothered in clusters of fragrant, pinkesh-purple flowers. Perfect for a shrub border or woodland garden, ideally in partial shade.

A well drained soil that does not dry out is required. Apply a mulch in spring to retain moisture and keep the roots cool. No pruning is required other than removing crossing branches.


Flowers February - March
Height 1.5m
