What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bill Marken added this to Great Design Plant: Winter Daphne
Botanical name: Daphne odora Common name: Winter daphneOrigin: Native to China and JapanUSDA zones: 7 to 9 Water requirement: Moderate; don't let the soil dry outLight requirement: Partial shade, especially where there's midday sunMature size: 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, and largerBenefits and tolerances: Small but potently fragrant flowers can fill a garden with scent; a few sprigs brought indoors will perfume a room. The lustrous-leafed shrub fits into many landscape situations. It's generally free of insect pests but is susceptible to often-mysterious root maladies, creating its reputation as an unpredictable malingerer.Seasonal interest: Blooms in mid to late winter and early springWhen to plant: Plant container-grown plants almost any time of year, although spring and fall are generally the best times.
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

And you no longer need a ton of floor space to accommodate a sleep sofa. Companies like American Leather have sleeper models with king-size mattresses that are less than 7 feet long and 37 inches deep, and queen-size sofa beds that are only 63 inches long. What’s more, American Leather constructs these pieces in a modular manner so they can easily squeeze through small doorways.
