we like it wild- daphne

our post this week is on the powerfully fragranced daphne flower. just one of the tiny flower clusters can fill a room with an amazing fruit loopy scent. it is one of our favorite plants/flowers and had beautiful foliage, but it can be difficult to grow and is poisonous when ingested so use caution with planting location. most daphne plant owners think its worth the trouble though.
