Well done indeed Rudi. A great reward for your patience. Does this species have any perfume?

I have a very nice daphne from Mr Pilous's seed a few years ago. Although it has grown really well, it is only this last summer (from Nov) that it has flowered. The seed was as kosaninii pink form, and looks quite like oleoides, but pink. I couldn't detect any perfume at all but it did set quite a lot of seed as little orange fruit.
