Since losing my Marie Viburnum I have been looking for 4 very good specimens .
I've been hankering for a Daphne 'carol mackie ' for some time now but could never find one that looked that great. Apparently they aren't very happy in containers and as a result look rather sparce. I happened to run across a very impressive one a few days ago and snatched it up.
Here she is :
And this is what her flowers look like :
And did I mention that they are not only pretty but fragrant as well ? Carol blooms in the Spring and then again in the Fall and her foliage is beautiful all season long.
Since she is very young I'll call her Princess Carol. I have enough room for three more pretenders to the throne of the late Queen Marie.
