House Plant Index
Daphne is a familiar garden shrub, particularly D. cneorum and mezercum. The Japanese daphne makes a desirable house plant, both for its persistent evergreen foliage and the clusters of fragrant rose purple flowers, which appear in March. It makes a charming accent plant in the window garden or conservatory.
Grow in a cool room and do not allow the plant to dry out.
A horticultural variety (marginata) is available with yellow-edged leaves.
