Description

‘Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance’ bursts into bloom with tight clusters of pink flowers at the tips of its deep green foliage. As the flowers age, they gradually fade to white. This variety will also continue to spot flower throughout the year, but with less intensity in its pink flower colour.

‘Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance’ is frost hardy, and both heat and dry tolerant. This Daphne performs in sunny sites without scorching. ‘Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance’ is also tolerant of both alkaline and acidic soils.

Care

Requires a sunny to a lightly shaded site in most soil types as long as it is well draining. ‘Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance’ is best grown in moist, fertile soils. For optimum results, lightly prune and feed in summer with a slow release fertiliser to maintain shape and vigour. As the variety is semi-deciduous, the evergreen foliage may incur some leaf drop when subjected to very low temperatures but once the warmer weather arrives will flush with new foliage, covering any unsightliness.

CAUTION – Harmful if eaten. Skin/eye irritant.
