Daphne x ‘Lawrence Crocker’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

Named for the co-founder of Oregon’s Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery and applauded as the best dwarf hybrid Daphne, this pint-sized, sweetly perfumed evergreen is a cross between D. arbuscula and D. collina. Wafting an intoxicating spicy sweetness, clustered deep pink blooms open from purple buds upon narrow, firm, shiny dark green leaves. The dense slow growing mound can be nestled into the rockery, atop a stone wall, along steps or in containers. Favored by butterflies as well as gardeners, but ignored by deer, ‘Lawrence Crocker’s handsome low habit craves summer mulch, protection from harsh winter wind and evenly moist, well-drained niches with a neutral pH.

Size: 8"–12" high wide; hardy to zone 6.
