Hi David, this one is evergreen in the coldest winters and flowers in summer.. I don't think it's going to be a top class garden plants, it's too leggy. Though everything has grown enormously here over the last year and future years might see it thicken up

I've come to the conclusion that this is D,acutiloba as advertised. There's more references on the web now and only one says it's not hardy and I think that site has been translated from another  language and may be suspect. It comes from thousands of feet up a mountain, it must be hardy.

The flowers and shape are right. It's a bit short of scent but I'll see what next year brings. It's a fast grower for a daphne

Lily, perhaps we should all check our ignored list

Done mine as mentioned. No real people on it and the others are stuck

I like to give things several chances, followed by a warning, then the compost heap/shredder

I wouldn't see it as a crime.

Sometimes you get a plant that just isn't much good.

Maybe this is one of them

Probably would have been better to cut it down but it won't hurt it. I should think it's pot-bound by now as well. I's plant it, either now or in spring and cut it back next year

Bottom branches could be cut back to the trunk but that wouldn't do away with the needles and the spread.

Lovely as it might be it's not what I'd want in a small(ish) garden.  It's out of all proportion to its surroundings. I'd remove and plant something more appropriate to the space
