Daphne gemmata, is compact, with an inflorescence of clear yellow flowers. This species, a native to SW China where it is found growing in sun, well drained, stony banks. Replicate these conditions in cultivation and this plant will grow to 1 metre in height and width. The flowers are scented and long lasting. Flowering at this time of year it will be interesting to see if a frost knocks them out and discolours the corolla. In the meantime a plant to be appreciated.
