A distinctive yet somewhat elusive species; you'll find it listed besides Daphne collina also as D. sericea 'Collina' and D. collina of gardens. Many excellent hybrids, like the two large groups of D. x nepalenes and D. x susannea have D. collina as a parent. Apparently it used be offered wholesale in Oregon a while back but after much searchingwe didn't find any. Several years ago I was able to find one in Switzerland and the slow process of establishing stock and eventually a few plants to share started. It's not found in the wild (anymore) but the plant at hand has several defining characteristics distinguishing it form Daphne sericea, particularly in the evergreen leaves: they are glossy, dark olive-green and much wider than D. sericea. While the surface is haired like in sericea, the edges are more prominently fringed with hair, especially the newer leaves. The flowers are similar to D. sericea and just like them, D. collina can re-bloom throughout summer and fall. Please note this description applies to this specific clone, as there are several different ones floating around worldwide.
