Daphne longilobata ‘Peter Moore’

Project Description

The long narrow grey-green leaves are margined creamy white creating a very striking effect.  Evergreen. White flowers in summer followed by orangey-red berries. Perhaps a touch delicate to plant outside in the harsher areas but worthy of a winter home in any conservatory.

From Daphnes A Practical Guide for Gardeners by Robin White

Robin White has a very effectively blended his long experience of growing,  propagating and observing Daphnes in this excellent and very informative book that will prove an invaluable aid to all gardeners and will certainly stimulate further interest in cultivating this most attractive genus of garden plants. It will undoubtedly remain the standard work on Daphnes and their cultivation for many years to come.
