Daphne x transatlantica 'Summer Ice'

|Design Ideas||Pair with dark-foliage plants to showcase the champagne-colored flowers and elegant ivory-edged foliage. Use at the edge of a tree understory, where it will shine in the dappled sunlight, and bask in the gentle fall through winter sun, when the trees are bare. Plant en masse to create a fragrant pathway to a front gate or garden destination. Plant a pair on opposite sides to frame entry steps or a patio door. Situate adjacent to seating areas where the intoxicating, spicy-sweet scent can be enjoyed all spring, through the summer months, and well into fall.|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum); Camellia (Camellia); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Azalea (Azalea); Heath (Erica)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, moist, very well-drained soil. Prefers a permanent location; transplant gently. Shelter from harsh summer sun. Mulch to keep roots cool and conserve moisture. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize in early spring. Rarely needs pruning.|
