General Description

Garland flower is a low trailing evergreen shrub from the mountains of central and southern Europe. In late spring, 'Ruby Glow' bears beautiful clusters of very fragrant pinkish-red flowers. It sometimes reblooms sparsely. Its rambling branches have narrow dark green leaves.

Rose daphne should be planted in full to partial sun and cool, well-drained, humus rich soil. It is often slow to establish. Prune lightly after flowering to avoid a ragged appearance in winter. It makes a nice patio or rock garden plant.
