In the wild this beautiful evergreen plant with scented flowers grows in the Eastern Himalayas from East Nepal to Bhutan. The cultivar Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' is a superb, upright shrub, raised by Alan Postill at Hilliers Nursery and named after his wife. In January and February, the abundant pink flowers have an exquisite perfume, and last well when cut and used in floral decorations.

An ideal plant for positions near front or back doors where the full impact of the scent can be felt daily when in flower!
