Australia: Daphne Perfume Princess is ready for retail shelves

One of the most successful plants to emerge from the Anthony Tesselaar stable has been Daphne Perfume Princess. Its full sun exposure, larger flower size and quick growing features have combined to produce a strong retailer / consumer demand for this plant.

From now onwards, this popular plant will be readily available in greater numbers to the retail market. This award winning plant has previously only been available in limited numbers.

Rich flowering & winter hardy
This is a cross between two different types of daphne, d. Odora which is rather finicky but grown for its rich perfume plus the tricky one to grow d. bholua known for its rich flowering and winter hardiness. (Jacqueline Postill is a cultivar of d. bholua).

Perfume Princess has a rich scented perfume of Odora but with the beautiful citrus undertones of d. bholua and longer flowering season with larger blooms.

Plant of the Year
It is capable of growing in full sun (both in Tesselaar’s trial gardens up to 40 deg C (full sun) and also outside in places like the hot and humid state of Alabama in the USA). Daphne Perfume Princess is both quick to grow (in almost most soils) and flower and more tolerant of most Daphne growing conditions.

This plant has already proved its merits as a consumer favourite and it won the Plant of the Year Award in Australia.

You can discuss Daphne Perfume Princess with the team on the Tesselaar stand at IPM Essen on stand E39 Hall 2.
