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.
