Daphnes


One of the best things about winter is the beautifully fragrant winter daphne.

Daphnes are an evergreen shrub that grows best in cool to temperate climates and can tolerate light frosts, making them perfect for garden across Central Victorian. Most daphne varieties grow to be about one metre high and wide, making them a great option for both planting and pots. The most commonly grown variety in Australia is Daphne Odora (pictured below) which has stunning pink and white flowers. 

After planting daphnes, apply a thick mulch to the base of your plants as this will help insulate the roots. It will keep them cool in winter and warm over the spring and summer months. Visit your nearest ASQ Garden & Landscape nursery or ASQ Skydancers during winter to see our beautiful range.
