at Digging Dog
A striking deciduous selection made at the
Beijing Botanic Garden by Don Hackenberry, this deer-resistant gem celebrates a lilac-like bounty of delicate tubular-shaped lavender pink blossoms on unique, long leafless sable gray stems. Every node of the wiry upright vigorous growth sprouts a breathtaking flower followed by handsome greenery with silken-haired undersides. Good drainage, acidic nutrient-rich soil and a little shelter from late frost ensures Daphne genkwa’s singular beauty, while a permanent residence guarantees its survival.
Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
