Buy Daphne gemmata 'Royal Crown' spurge laurel: Fragrant yellow flowers in late spring and early summer

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    A pretty (and unusual) addition to the mixed or shrub border, this daphne produces its rich yellow flowers in late spring and early summer - and these are followed later in the season by bright red berries. It's ideal for placing next to a patio or entrance, where you can take full advantage of the flowers rich perfume, which in sheltered gardens will fill the surrounding air.

  • Garden care: Keep pruning to a minimum since the plant is very susceptible to die-back. Where necessary after flowering, lightly trim back to remove misplaced branches and maintain a compact habit.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
