DAPHNE odora ‘Aureomarginata’

Daphne –

0098 “Variegated winter daphne is an intensely perfumed plant that comes from China and Japan. ‘Aureomarginata’ (‘Marginata’) displays attractive glossy, leathery leaves with a variable-width edge of yellow. Blooming in the winter with clusters of red-purple flowers, they are followed by pretty red fruits.

Unfortunately, this shrub is short-lived and demanding in its culture. Winter daphne requires extremely well-drained but moist neutral soils, so careful watering and mulching is important. ‘Aureomarginata’ should be sited in some sun but sheltered from hot midday sun and dry winds. A slight reduction in watering in late summer has a tendency to result in increased flowering the following winter. The heavenly smelling blossoms are worth trying winter daphne in the patio garden or rockery.”
