  • Daphne x transatlantica is a hybrid of Daphne caucasica and Daphne sericea. Daphne x transatlantica ‘Pink Fragrance’ is a small, semi-evergreen shrub that produces scented, pale-pink flowers. The flowers come from new growth, which means it’ll keep flowering throughout the whole growing season, from spring through to late autumn.

     

    Commonly known as Daphne, they are not very easy to grow and can be prone to establishment problems. After transplanting them, it is important to achieve a delicate balance between keeping the soil moist and keeping it well-drained. They can be prone to several diseases including honey fungus, fungal leaf spot, and viral diseases. Daphnes can sometimes die without an obvious cause, so you should plant then in an area where they are easy to remove if they don’t survive. February and June are the best times to fertilise Daphne x transatlantica ‘Pink Fragrance’. Daphne shrubs can tolerate most soils, but they could become nutrient deficient if they are grown on highly alkaline soils. A three-inch mulch layer should be applied in summer to keep the soil moist.

     

    On the positive side, Daphne’s do not require much pruning or maintenance. Daphne shrubs may irritate the skin, so remember to wear gloves. This plant is not safe for babies and pets.
