Originating in the eastern Himalayas, Daphne bholua forms an upright growing evergreen shrub with leathery mid-green oval leaves. Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' produces clusters of pretty, intensely fragrant flowers which are pink on the outside and white within. It makes an ideal shrub for the small garden because it is slow growing and flowers during the late winter when most other plants are dormant. 

Grow Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Daphnes hate transplanting and should only be pruned when absolutely necessary.
