Variegated Daphne in Bloom - a fragrant flowering shrub with beautiful evergreen foliage



This beautiful variegated Daphne, in the Front Border, was blooming in late April (zone 6b). The blooms have a beautiful fragrance and groupings of small pink and white flowers.

Perhaps what I love about this shrub even more than the flowers is the interesting, evergreen foliage. Last June, when I hosted a garden tour, the shrub obviously had no flowers, but many people commented about how much they loved it.

If you are looking for an alternative to a conifer, an evergreen without needles, try Daphne.

Julia, your plants look amazing! To be honest, I have never grown Daphne..But now I know that I have to try. I understand why people love it! One plant that all of my friends really appreciate every time they visit me is a Clematis from https://gardenseedsmarket.com/potted-flowers-en/page-2/ . It is really rich of yellow flowers but I have to try it in other shades! Have you ever grown this plant?
