The Most Fragrant of All Daphnes!

Every long, elegant evergreen leaf is outlined in glowing gold.

This Variegated Daphne 'Aureomarginata Rosea' 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 'Aureomarginata Rosea' 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.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Just encountered two of these, barely abloom, yet already improving the smell of a NW DC neighborhood (on Feb 25 no less). Planted on either side of steps, but much too close to handle the projected 4-5 ft spread. Sorely tempted to leave them a note about moving the plants while small, and commending them on their excellent taste in shrubbery. The aroma was so intense and multilayered, it could only be Daphne!
