One of the best things about Winter in Australia is the strong fragrance of daphne in flower.
This Winter daphne (Daphne odora) was introduced from China, a wonderful, low growing, evergreen shrub featuring dark green glossy foliage and white heavily scented flowers from Winter through to Spring, making a spectacular display and also a great cut flower for a vase.
Frost and cold hardy, it is ideal for borders, rockeries or in pots. Prefers full or ½ shade, growing to approx. 1m. The flowers are pretty, but small, however what they lack in size they make up for in fragrance.
