Daphne

A beautiful–and powerfully fragrant–flower, daphne is a great plant that can sometimes get a bad rap for being hard to grow. At Fairview Garden Center, we recommend planting in a container with drainage holes. If planting in the ground, make sure to amend your soil really well and plant higher than you normally would to avoid root rot. This ensures your daphne grows healthy and lasts longer.
