  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: January to March

    The lustrous foliage of this handsome evergreen has a broad creamy yellow margin, and from midwinter, it produces dome-shaped bunches of deliciously scented soft pink flowers, which open from darker pink buds. A showy daphne, Rebecca has only recently become available, but it will make a fine addition to the woodland or cottage garden.

  • Garden care: Keep pruning to a minimum since the plant is susceptible to die-back. Where necessary after flowering, lightly trim to remove misplaced branches and maintain a compact habit.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
