Oh, to be more like…Daphne Odora Aureomarginata

  • seductive– despite Daphne’s reputation for being temperamental and capricious, gardeners simply can’t resist her wiles
  • elegant – well-dressed in all four seasons, this Daphne is evergreen with dashing variegated edging, and is in bud or bloom for months and months
  • a tease – dark pink flower buds start to form in the dead of winter, months before they coyly open to blossoms of the palest pink in March and April
  • unforgettable –  the fragrance of Daphne flowers is entrancing…intoxicating, but never cloying
  • steadfast – she’s demanding, but if you give her what she wants, she’ll beguile you for years
