Daphne odora 'Maejima'

 

A spectacle as complex and fulfilling as its name, the Maejima Winter Daphne is an evergreen that leaves you on the edge of your seat until its blooming time. Featuring its variegated foliage of dark green and a pastel yellow-beige, its humble beginnings present itself in the late spring with its rustic cottage-core appeal. This trend continues into early winter and then the real magic happens when it starts to bloom. Dark lavender to washed pink blooms take center stage in this climax of color with each of its growing tips contrasting the lovely foliage. Maejima fares well in the warmer zones of 7-9 but can be enjoyed in the northern states so long as they can be sheltered when it starts to get colder. Consider growing as accent pieces or fillers along paths or in containers.

 

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting Daphne as they prefer less watering than you might think. In clay soil we prefer planting with pine bark soil conditioner for Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, Azalea, and Daphne.
