Daphne odora 'Aureo-marginata'

The Daphne is in bloom. Actually, the first blossoms opened on Saturday. But today was the first time that I was knocked out by the perfume. I probably shouldn't be blogging about this plant--it might be bad karma. I've had such good luck with it. It graces the garden by my front door and the fragrance is intoxicating. My goal has been to have fragrance year-round in this garden. I'm still working on it. Posted by Picasa

I love daphne! I planted one in my garden last year, but our soil is very clay-ish, and I think the soil stayed too wet for it to do well despite my amendment efforts. Maybe I"ll try again this spring...but you're right, the scent is heavenly!
