Grows here in Central Florida under Oak trees. Beautiful foliage, begins to bloom in February here. So far trouble free, great companion plant for Camelias.

Daphnes in general hate to have their roots disturbed, often dying as a result. It is therefore really important when planting to choose a permanent place for it, as it will not tolerate transplanting.
