    I planted a C.M. Daphne 14 years ago and it flourished in part shade, about 20" high. Flourished too well! I planted it too close to a walkway and it had completely blocked it so this year I had to cut it out. {Sob!} The stem base was so thick I finally had to resort to a motorized saw.
    You can bet I'm getting a new one so I can enjoy its sweet fragrance, pretty leaves and flowers, but this time I'll make sure to allow at least 3-4 feet between it and the walk!
