Daphne 'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' is the sister to the award-winning 'Eternal Fragrance'. Direct from the same long term breeding program, it is also backed by thirty years of research and development by renowned plant breeder, Robin White.

'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' bursts into bloom with tight clusters of pink flowers at the tips of its deep green foliage. As the flowers age, they gradually fade to white. This variety will also continue to spot flower throughout the year, but with less intensity in its pink flower colour. 'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' has the same exquisite fragrance as 'Eternal Fragrance'.

'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' is frost hardy, and both heat and dry tolerant. This daphne performs in sunny sites without scorching. 'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' is also tolerant of both alkaline and acidic soils, unlike other daphnes which are traditionally pH sensitive. 'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' is a colour break from the original, award winning Daphne 'Eternal Fragrance', and is sure to be popular by gardeners across the globe. Daphne 'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' looks great when planted alongside its brother, Daphne 'Eternal Fragrance'

Daphne 'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' requires a sunny to a lightly shaded site in most soil types as long as it is well draining. Daphnes do not like to 'sit' in water which encourages root rot. 'Spring Pink Eternal Fragrance' is best grown in moist, fertile soils. For optimum results, lightly prune and feed in summer with a slow release fertiliser to maintain shape and vigour. Will tolerate both slightly alkaline to acid soils making this a truly unique daphne variety for the Australian environment. As the variety is semi-deciduous, the evergreen foliage may incur some leaf drop when subjected to very low temperatures but once the warmer weather arrives will flush with new foliage, covering any unsightliness. Conversely, it has survived temperatures of up to 40°C in trials in Australia. CAUTION - Harmful if eaten. Skin/eye irritant.
