    This relatively new hybrid (Daphne acutiloba x Daphne sureil) is a beauty. It's mainly evergreen leaves form a handsome shrub, which in spring, is laden with lots of pure white waxy-looking flowers that form in loosely clustered heads. These have a strong and deliciously sweet perfume, so try to plant it near a path or doorway, so you get a good whiff each time you pass. This gorgeous new daphne is a great choice for a sheltered garden or woodland edge and is bound to be a best-seller in no time at all.
