[teacher] Rose Daphne (Daphne cneorum) is a very fragrant, low growing evergreen shrub which produces its main flush of blooms in the Spring but will often produce more flowers throughout the Summer. This small shrub is excellent as a ground cover or as foreground plantings in beds, growing to a height of one foot, with a 2-3 foot spread.

Rose Daphne grows well in sun or light shade in USDA zones 4-8. They should have protection from strong winds to ensure that they grow upright rather than "leaning" to the side, and should be planted in moist, well draining soil with a nearly neutral pH. Rose Daphne does not transplant well once it has become established.

Daphne cneorum 'alba' is a smaller (6" tall) variety which produces white flowers.

Rose Daphne may be grown from seed or propagated from softwood cuttings.
