Quick Overview:

‘Blafra’, commonly known by the trade name of ETERNAL FRAGRANCE, is a rounded, open-branched shrub that features intensely fragrant white flowers in spring with irregular and sporadic continued bloom occurring on new growth from summer into fall on branches clad with semi-glossy, narrow, elliptic, dark green leaves (to 2″ long). This daphne typically grows in a mound to 2-3′ tall and as wide. Foliage is semi-evergreen in USDA Zones 7 and higher, deciduous in colder zones.

Description

Best grown in moist, rich, sandy-humusy, well-drained soils with a neutral pH in part shade. Sharp soil drainage is essential. Consider raised plantings in areas of heavy clay soils to insure good drainage. Best sited in locations protected from cold winter winds. Winter root mulch is advisable. Do not allow soils to dry out. Established plants have some drought tolerance, but dry soils may reduce summer bloom. Daphnes are often slow to establish and are best left undisturbed once planted.
