Somerset, United Kingdom
My computer's doing funny things, so this is the third time I've attempted to ask this question - apologies if three appear all at once!
I'd like to grow a Winter Daphne Odora in a small (4ft diameter approx) bed with a row of conifers to the south & huge trees to the east, creating dry shade. Soil probably slightly acidic (lots of manure & pine needles). Would a daphne survive here? If not, any suggestions for a smallish, colourful, preferably scented & evergreen, shrub? At present there is a small, very sad-looking azalea, a few heuchera & cyclamen plus a couple of primroses all of which I'm willing to sacrifice/move. Am in wettish, warmish Somerset.
