PLANT OF THE WEEK
‘Aureomarginata One of the rewards of January gardening is the delight when you come across a scented flowering shrub. I have a Daphne near my front door.
‘Aureomarginata’ is one of the easiest Daphnes to grow and flowers from now until March, emitting a strong perfume from its small, pale pink flowers.
The subtle gold margin around the leaves gives a brightness during the dimly lit months of winter. Plant in a sunny, fertile soil and no pruning is necessary, unless you need to restrict its size.
