Yet another choice and hard to find rock garden Daphne. There are two forms of D. jasminea on the market; a low, hummock-forming plant (under 6") and a more upright form that can reach 18". Both are evergreen with late spring terminal clusters of pink-budded, white flowers. Sporatic blooms throughout the rest of the summer.
