Brian - I bought this shrub nearly ten years ago from Blackthorn Nursery in Surrey (now closed) who stocked many daphnes. Robin White, the owner, wrote a definitive guide to growing them. He also released 'Limelight', a sport of this one, with cream/yellow leaves with green margins.

Similar to our Rebecca, but yours have longer leaves., our Daphne are almost over! and we are not that far away!

Andrew
So he Raised Geisha Girl.?
i visited Blackthorn nursey in its hay day very inspiring and made things I consider difficult to proagate look easy.
I have his book on Daphne excellent to refer to.

Brian - I'm not sure he raised 'Geisha Girl', but he mentions it on page 86 (I have his book too!)

It surprises me how some books loose value quickly while others gain original price was £25.00

I'll scour the 2nd hand bookshops for a month or so then go online. It looks a really informative book. and as you 2 gentlemen recommend it, it must be worth it.

I'd say it's the definitive book on growing daphnes.
