Oh, my word! Jozef, how beautiful! Thank you. Some of these cultivars are new to me, most interesting.

I feel the urge to make my rockery a Daphnetum. I think I should stay away from the Czech show

If I were ever to raise a good Daphne, I'd call it "Broon" ...................sorry. little joke for the Scots... and Martin B. who knows all about DC Thomson!

In a famous Scottish cartoon, (running for about seventy years, I think) about a family called Brown, who are, of course, in Scotland  known as "the Broons,"   there is a character called Daphne.... Daphne Broon !!

My 'Eternal Fragrance' got me a first at todays show. Jozef, yours is a huge plant but I thought it was only released to  sale about two years ago. How old is yours?

The only daphne in flower at the moment in the Rock Garden is D. alpina. I thought this was a spring flowerer but I guess after the stress of the past summer the poor thing was anxious to get into bloom! We've only just entered autumn here in Central Victoria.

Mark,
At the Czech conference will be a lecture about Daphnes by Vlastimil Braun.
Yes, my ‘Eternal Fragrance’ is two years old, but a plant in the “open”  garden grows always much quicker than in a small pot.
Eternal Fragrance” is an hybrid between D. caucasica and collina, called D. x transatlantica. Below is a picture of another transatlantica clone. The plant isn’t in full flower yet, but I am afraid it is a little bit too large for a pot.

I forgot to come back to you. I must re read the list of lectures again.

My unknown Daphne is 'Lawrence Crocker'. The name popped in to my head one evening while lying in bed after Erodium 'David Crocker' came in to my head

Here is a close up of my 'Eternal Fragrance' and the soon to flower, hopefully, D. domini

Not a dwarf by any means a thirty something year old tangutica . I cannot think of amore fragrant daphne it can be quite overpowering. The boss is shown for scale

Also growing through the lower part of the Daphne is Lithodora oliefolium that was planted at about the same time and has now become enveloped

now that is big!

From my small collection I think 'Eternal Fragrance' is the nicest followed by 'Fritz Kummert'. A bit over powering in the garden is a combination scent of Rhododendron 'Lady Alice' and DB Iris 'Open Sky'
