Daphne bholua 'Darjeeling'

Six of the best daphnes to grow

Daphnes are small plants that are big on fragrance. We recommend six favourites.

Daphnes are colourful shrubs, usually blooming in late winter and early spring, though a few bloom in summer.

They’re fantastic plants for small gardens, with various types perfect for different situations, such as in window boxes, large containers, mixed borders, areas of dry shade and gravel gardens. There are both evergreen and deciduous varieties.
