    A pretty (and unusual) addition to the mixed or shrub border, this daphne produces its rich yellow flowers in late spring and early summer - and these are followed later in the season by bright red berries. It's ideal for placing next to a patio or entrance, where you can take full advantage of the flowers rich perfume, which in sheltered gardens will fill the surrounding air.

  • Garden care: Keep pruning to a minimum since the plant is very susceptible to die-back. Where necessary after flowering, lightly trim back to remove misplaced branches and maintain a compact habit.
  • Humans/Pets: TOXIC if eaten; skin irritant
