Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata'

Daphne odora 'Marginata'

Hardy Shrub

Deeply fragrant pale pink blooms open around Christmas time, and fragrance the air in the depths of winter. Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata' is a hardy evergreen shrub with a rounded compact habit and attractive glossy, yellow edged leaves. This highly sought after shrub holds an RHS AGM for good reason, making a stylish addition to sunny or semi-shaded borders. Daphne's slow growth habit also makes it ideal for large containers, where the scent can be enjoyed up close. Height and spread: 150cm (59").

Pot up Daphne shrubs and grow them on in frost free conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting in their final positions. Transplant Daphne plants into borders and containers outdoors in moist, fertile, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Choose a position in sun or semi shade. When growing in containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Daphne resents root disturbance so try to avoid this when transplanting as this may delay plant establishment.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, Daphne plants require only occasional attention. Pruning of Daphne is best kept to a minimum, removing only occasional damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in summer after flowering. Caution: All parts of Daphne are toxic if eaten and contact with the sap may irritate the skin and eyes.
