Daphne mezereum lifespan
The oldest of our Daphne mezereums will be about 12/15 years. Last year the white one flowered perfectly, set seed and then died suddenly. This year the red one has done exactly the same.There does not seem to be any obvious reason for this. (Fortunately both have left plenty of babies behind so we can replace)
I would have thought that D. mezereum would have been quite a long lived shrub, am I wrong about this?
