Sometimes called the February Daphne because of its welcome early flowering habit, D. mezereum is a shade-loving woodland plant that will tolerate full sun provided its roots never dry out. It is a favourite shrub in cottage gardens and borders near paths and doorways where the sweet fragrance can be enjoyed early in the year.
This form has cream white flowers which are densely clustered all along the bare stems and begin to fade as the young foliage appears. All parts of the plant are poisonous, but especially the yellow berries in autumn and winter.

I found the plant search very useful, I decided to press the 'Print this page button' so that I could pass on the info. to a friend. Imagine my horror when instead of just printing the one page about the plant I got 10 pages including adverts weather forecast etc. all from the Gardeners World site.
This cannot be right in an age where we are trying desperately not to waste resources. Please, please look into this matter and save the wastage of ink, paper etc.
I like the fact that these features give you some idea of the level of gardener you should be to tackle growing some plants.
Oh dear Useful this was but now I need to have one of each variety;)
