Daphne arbuscula

Daphne arbuscula

A very choice miniature shrub, small narrow, darkgreen leaves and rose pink flowers in spring. It likes a little shade unlike most daphnes. It grows in limestone areas so a limestone mulch would be a good way to make it happy. Only about 8-10 inches high and very much dome shaped. Slow growing and very choice! Our original plant came many years ago from Siskiyou Nursery.

Daphne arbuscula x verlotii

Daphne arbuscula x verlotii

A profusely flowering hybrid with long, narrow, glossy green leaves and hot pink flowers. Our original plant is in the tufa garden for about 15 years now and is only about 5-6 inches high covering 3 foot or so in width. It has long ago swallowed up smaller daphnes along the way and is in the process now in devouring a dwarf Norway spruce. I know nothing about the cross and canít really remember who we got it from but we do have the reverse cross of it also, Daphne cneorum f. verlotii x arbuscula, look for it under the D. cneorum heading.

Daphne caucasica

Daphne caucasica

Daphne caucasica I love this plant so deeply it is almost obscene, and for one simple reason: Fragrance. It is wonderful, and the kind of carrying fragrance that travels far. Customers smell while shopping for something else and have to take a moment to track down, and then have to have one. Better yet, flowering is pretty much continuous. Walk by the plants basically any day from May to October or even early November, and they'll have flowers on them, pumping out that exquisite perfume. Forms an upright shrub probably topping out around 3 feet. I consider it absolutely essential to happiness. Zone 5, at least.

Daphne circassica #1 best

Daphne circassica #1 best

Endemic to the western Caucasus in the region of Mt Fist and Mt. Osten at altitudes from 1800 to 3200m, this cool little Daphne is still very rare in cultivation; it was first introduced by Halda in 1998. Circassica is closely related to sericea and collina and has been fully hardy here. The compact clone we offer is the best of the seedling forms we have seen and should be named; I am toying with 'Fist of God' after the mountain on Niven's Ringworld.

Daphne juliae

Daphne juliae

Daphne juliae Largely similar to (and maybe actually a form of) D. cneorum, which is to say, it is lovely and fragrant with rich pink flowers, but flowers a week or two earlier than D. cneorum.

Daphne sericea Compact Form

Daphne sericea Compact Form

Closely related to collina, (Halda lumped collina into sericea but I doubt if anyone will take it seriously I agree with robin that the two are distinct and the Turkish forms are quite different from the Cretan ones) the heads of sweetly scented lilac flowers, are produced in spring and it generally reblooms later in the summer, in the garden it will make neat rounded mounds 2-3' in height.

Daphne striata dwarf

Daphne striata dwarf

A dwarf form of the cneorum like species that can rival petraea, the AGS encyclopedia considers it a difficult plant however it has presented few real problems for us. Very, very small plants!
