Daphne bholua 'Limpsfield' at RHS Wisley

Daphne bholua ‘Limpsfield’, overlooking the glasshouse at RHS Wisley. Scent is so important to the winter garden. Many flowers are almost insignificant (Sarcoccoca for example) but pack a real olfactory punch. Daphne bholua, flowering now, have richly fragrant blossom and as you can see, are quite showy too. This is Daphne bholua ‘Limpsfield’ – photographed overlooking the glasshouse at RHS Wisley last week (a cultivar I have yet to find on sale). Daphne bholua ‘Jacqueline Postil’ is more commonly available, evergreen, with deep pink purple outside the flowers and white within.
