about 20 cm high and more than 0,5 m in diameter / hardy / evergreen / scented /
carpet like growth / sunny place
first cross was made 1973 by Severin Schlyter (Sweden) with Daphne cneorum ‘Leila
Haines’ and Daphne arbuscula, the cultivar was named ‘Lovisa Maria’ / ‘Pink Panther’
is a spontaneous cross with the same parentage that took place in the garden of Dr.
Hans Bauer (Germany) made also this cross and gave a seedling to Mr. Holzbecher who
propagated and named the cultivar ‘Hans Bauer’, the special characteristic of this
cultivar is the cristate growth similar to the platyclada form of Daphne arbuscula
forma platyclada, but this Daphne x schlyteri hybrid is not stabile and changes always
from normal to cristate growth - the same does Daphne x schlyteri ‘Anita Selma’ /
nice pink flowers has Daphne x schlyteri ‘July Glow’ / Daphne x schlyteri ‘Leon Doyen’
(breeder Dirk M. Jockel) is a hybrid with a darker and more intense flower colour
than the above mentioned cultivars.
