Gotta Getcha' One

Posted May 11 2011 9:50am

Introducing ..... . Daphne burkwoodii  'Carol Mackie ' -queen of the Spring garden with gorgeous variegated leaves and fragrant blossoms.  Named for the famed lover of Apollo you too will love Daphne , especially if you have a small garden.  She'll take partial shade to full sun and will grow to 3 x 4 feet.

 Daphne also attracts hummers and will re-bloom in the Fall. Even when not in bloom her variegated leaves are effective all season.   In my experience it will take several years before Daphne comes into her own.  I used to overlook her at the garden center because she didn't look that impressive, but I saw a mature one in a client's garden and it was love at first sight  She grows more beautiful with each passing year .  Wish I could say that!
