Daphne odora, commonly called winter daphne because of its late winter flowers, is a broadleaf evergreen shrub that is native to China and Japan. Profuse, fragrant dark pink blooms are stunning in contrast to rich green and yellow variegated leaves. It's deer-resistant and winter blooming making it an excellent foundation planting or border addition. Drought tolerant when established.
A cherished garden plant with glossy yellow variegated leaves and fragrant dark pink flowers in late winter, on a mounded shrub; a relatively fussy plant, needing light shade and well-drained soil; never move once established

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
