Berries are falling from my Daphne mezereum and longilobata all seeds have been allocated. Would anyone like some seeds? Daphne longilobata has been flowering since the end of May without a break. This form has no scent

How fortunate you are Mark,  if I want seeds from my daphnes I have to cover them so the tits don't pick them off! >:(

I collected seed of Daphne mezereum var alpina in Totes Gebirge and Höllengebirge (1800m). Interest? And reichsteinii, oleoides and kosaninii (garden).

Hans how does D. mez alpina differ from the ordinary garden variety? I'll take some seeds please of this one. I just found this Daphne mezereum 'Alpina' is a semi-prostrate form that hails from Jack Drake's Alpine Nursery in Scotland. It is, indeed, a very interesting plant which is very slow growing and eventually forms a gnarled compact shrub
David email me your address please.

Hi Mark,

excuse my late answer, I have not seen your thread earlier!
It is correct what you have said. Daphne mezereum var. alpina (so we call it here) is a Daphne mezereum which is very slow growing and have a compact shrub and leaves. The flowers are more dark red.
I will send you seeds, please send me your address again.

Best wishes
Hans
