The Most Fragrant of All Daphnes!

Every long, elegant evergreen leaf is outlined in glowing gold.
This Variegated Daphne is by far the most aromatic of all the Daphnes. Opening its purple buds to pink-to-white blooms in early spring, it perfumes the entire garden, then remains attractive all year, with dark green foliage neatly outlined in brightest gold.

Evergreen and much easier to grow than most Daphne cultivars, this shrub is nicely rounded, upright, and very well-branched. It grows vigorously and quite quickly to mature size. The beauty of this wonder arises early, as deep rosy-purple buds open to clustered pink-to-white flowers in March and April.

Variegated Daphne offers evergreen foliage that is long, slender, and richly colored, its band of gold variegation remaining even in summer heat and humidity. Expect it to reach a height and width of 4 to 5 feet. This excellent foundation shrub likes a cool and moist location, preferably in light shade. Zones 7-9a, 10 on the west coast.

Awakening Spring
Ruth Sims from VA wrote (July 03, 2014):
I have purchased 7 Daphne Odora of which all but one are thriving and the beautiful scents start in very, very early Spring and gets the gardening spirit moving. I am trying to find out why the one died or how to propagate cuttings. Any suggestions.
