Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata'



A hardy compact evergreen shrub.

The handsome foliage is narrowly and irregularly edged in gold variegation, making it a good back ground plant when out of flower, but really this us one grown for the blooms and heady perfume. When it is fully established in your garden and in bloom, you probably will not be able to resist cutting off a few stems and bringing them indoors - the fragrance will become even more intense in the warmth.Just a couple of sprigs in a small jar or vase will fill a room with a sweet, heady, jasmine-like perfume. To appreciate the intoxicating scent in the garden these are best planted towards the front of a sunny, sheltered border close to an entrance or path, maybe in a bed or border near to the front or back door of your home. Perhaps position in a Patio Planter that you can move next to where you walk when it is in bloom to really appreciate its beauty and fragrance.
