Large Evergreen DP
Daphne odora: This stocky evergreen has wonderfully scented, pink flower clusters, and 'Aureomarginata' has leaves irregularly margined in off-white; alternatively, D. odora var. 'rubra' offers a deeper shade of pink. Even better for scent, though needing more shade and damp, is D. bholua (pictured); every twig bears a cluster of four-petalled flowers, white in the species, pink in 'Sir Peter Smithers'. Good for: growing in partial shade beneath "backbone" plants.
