Purple-black flower buds open to offer fragrant and violet-tinged white flowers. Their fragrance has none of the sweet lemon-vanilla scent of Daphne odora, but is, at least to me, a lot like a soft Indian incense—very alluring. Slow-growing and so worth it, this mound of forest-green evergreen leaves has later April–May blossoms. A choice species.
