This Variegated Daphne is by far the most aromatic of all the Daphnes. Opening its elegant 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 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.
