‘Jim’s Pride’ daphne

Daphne  × transatlantica 'Jim's Pride'

DAF-nee ex tranz-at-LAN-tih-kah Audio

This small shrub to 3-4 feet tall and wide blooms from late spring to fall with a liberal sprinkling of small, white, highly fragrant flowers over grey-green leaves that form a fine-textured mound. This shrub is semi-evergreen. It will retain some of its leaves in winter, though in colder climates it may be completely deciduous.

CareProvide full sun for abundant flowers, but partial shade is acceptable. This daphne prefers well-drained soil. Prune sparingly for shape or to remove wayward or crossing branches.

Propagation Sow seed when ripe or root cuttings in spring.

Problems All daphnes resent transplanting and will repond in kind. Various blights, wilts, rots, and scales may appear.
