This beautiful winter Daphne blooms in winter and early spring and offers up fragrant flowers with yellow-margined leaves and rosy-pink flower buds that open to white. The 'Marginata' has a rounded form that will reach 4 feet tall and wide and is beautiful against a wall or near a patio or deck where its fragrance can be appreciated. The winter Daphne prefers fertile, humus-rich, slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil in full sun or partial shade. It needs excellent drainage and weekly watering (more in high heat), resents transplanting and thrives with minimal pruning. The Daphne odora is native to China and Japan and is also a great foundation plant for dappled shade gardens where its variegated leaves really shine. Zones 7 - 9.
