I have a daphne bush about 8 years old - it flowered a little later this year because of the weather. Now all the leaves are gone and the branches feel limp and elastic - it looks porly. What can I do as I am very fond of this lovely fragrant bush?



We recently lost two Daphne mezereum, one red and one white, when they were about twelve years old. I have a suspicion that they (D mezereum at leat) are not long lived shrubs.

You're right there, Bulbaholic, they're not long lived plants.
