Variegated Winter Daphne, Daphne odora 'Aureo-marginata'

Photo by Doreen Wynja

Evergreen shrub prized for beautiful rosy-pink flower buds that open to white, sweetly fragrant flowers in winter and early spring. Foliage is attractively variegated with a yellow margin. A great foundation plant for the dappled shade garden. Beautifully featured against a wall or near a patio or deck where its fragrance can be appreciated.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Daphne odora. A total diva. Has the most evocative fragrance of any plant (yes, that's subjective). Doesn't deign to have a common name. Will sulk and die for no apparent reason. But try daphne at least once. Find a spot in partial shade and well-drained soil, where you can see and smell the small pink winter flowers, and give it a try. If it dies, try again somewhere else. Try it in a pot. Daphne is a good-looking evergreen with dense foliage, shiny green leaves (there is a variety with variegated leaves). It looks good in a mixed border, in a raised bed and in a container. Botanical name: Daphne odora USDA zones: 7 to 9 Water requirement: Moderate. Don't let the soil dry out. Light requirement: Partial shade, especially when there's midday sunMature size: 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, and largerGrowing tips: Needs perfect drainage. Amend the soil thoroughly with compost; don't bury the top of the root ball. To control the size and shape, you can prune, even shear back, a few inches after bloom.
3. Winter Daphne (Daphne odora ‘Aureo-marginata’)The attractive evergreen foliage, edged with a delicate touch of creamy yellow, is reason enough to grow this shrub, but it is the intoxicating, spicy fragrance that will win you over.Delicate pink buds open to clusters of white flowers that cover the shrub from February to March.Winter daphne grows at a moderate pace to 3 to 4 feet tall and wide; it can be lightly pruned after flowering to maintain a compact shape.

The attractive evergreen foliage, edged with a delicate touch of creamy yellow, is reason enough to grow this shrub, but it is the intoxicating, spicy fragrance that will win you over.Delicate pink buds open to clusters of white flowers that cover the shrub from February to March.Winter daphne grows at a moderate pace to 3 to 4 feet tall and wide; it can be lightly pruned after flowering to maintain a compact shape. How to use it. Plant winter daphne close to the house so you can enjoy the fragrance in February and March. Even better — bring a sprig indoors; a single bloom will perfume an entire room.Many references indicate that this shrub does not like root disturbance, yet I have grown smaller plants in a container for several years before transplanting them to the landscape without any ill effects.Origin: China and JapanWhere it will grow: Hardy to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (zones 7 to 9)Water requirement: ModerateLight requirement: Partial shade with protection from hot midday sun
