Daphne "Odorata"

Late this year, but boy is it making up for it now.....scent is sublime, lovely and cheery after the Winter.

I have daffs coming out now along with the hyacinths and crocuses, mini irises now gone over but lots more just in the wings !!!

Think Spring may be round the corner...yippee !

Mine is also in bloom but not sure of the species but has a lovely perfume. Had a nice lot of Snowdrops and Daffs. in bud. I was given a pot of Mini Iris bulbs and they have finished blooming - will send a piccie Yummy for you to put on your "Pets & Pastimes". By the way it said on the growing instructions "Discard after flowering". I was going to plant them out in the garden but does that mean they won't flower again?

Morning Dot, Well my mini Irises are the ones I planted last year in the window box, and they came up better this year than last. So I would leave them be, they have one of two chances.

The Daphne is a gorgeous smell isn't it. I take two or three branches about 6 inches when they are just showing the flowers and put them in a small vase, they open up beautifully and really perfume the room. Gorgeous!
