Daphne gemmata E. Pritzel (1900) also known as Wikstroemia gemmata
this Daphne species grows in Sichuan and Yunnan, China / ca. 0,5 m high, often less
/ ascending growth / no fragrance / fruits white / hardiness outside is given with
protection - deciduous / flowers permanently through the growing season
It is said that Daphne gemmata grows on sunny cliffs. In my experience is a half-shadowed
place more convenient for this species. Prefers a neutral soil with less lime.
The flower colour of Daphne gemmata changes from intensive yellow into pale yellow
on an inflorescence during flowering.
At a certain time only one blossom with a special intensity of the yellow colour
is fertile. Which bloom, the bumble bees know best.
A selected clone of this species is Daphne gemmata ‘Sceringa’.
