Product Information


Perfume Princess

A brand new variety of Daphne that is taking the gardening world by storm.

Forms a medium sized shrub with an attractive rounded habit and dark green, lustrous evergreen foliage.

Bred in New Zealand by Mark Jury, Daphne Perfume Princess has been described as “The World’s Most Fragrant Shrub”.

Earlier and longer flowering than any of its contemporaries this great new hybrid covers itself with a profusion of blooms from mid-winter until late spring.

These flowers are larger than other Daphne varieties and appear not only at the tip of each branch but also in clusters in the leaf axils along the entire stem.

Opening mid-pink and fading to white the blooms have a blissful, unmistakable Daphne fragrance and in full bloom not only are they pretty to look at they also fill the surrounding area with their heady scent.

Extremely useful as a cut flower and one stem in a vase will fill an entire room with perfume.

Said to be the perfect shrub to grow in your garden, a great choice for a partially shaded border or a woodland garden but equally suitable for providing year round interest as a specimen plant and adaptable enough to succeed in pots and containers.

Winter hardy in the British Isles and easy to grow in any moderately fertile, well drained, humus rich soil in full sun or partial shade.

Given time Daphne Perfume Princess will eventually reach a height and spread of 1.5m x 1.5m.

Experts in the trade are so taken by this newcomer that in 2016 it was awarded the prestigious honour of “Plant of the Year” by the Australian Nursery and Garden Industry Association and in 2018 it was awarded a Gold Medal at Belgium’s Florall Awards, also in June 2018 Horticulture Week the UK’s leading horticulture publication awarded it “Best New Ornamental Plant Variety”.

High praise indeed.

 All pictures used are of mature plants in full bloom and may not necessarily reflect plants at all times of the year.

Our Daphne Perfume Princess plants are supplied ex. propagation trays, they are well rooted with a 1.5in x 1.5in root-ball and do best when grown on in a slightly lager container before transplanting to their final growing positions.




We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll. Goods will only be accepted for return after seller has been informed and given permission for their return.  Refunds will be issued when items are received back in saleable condition within 14 days from original despatch date. Buyer must pay all return charges except where an item has been dispatched in error.
