Daphne can be deciduous or evergreen shrubs with small, usually very fragrant tubular, 4-lobed flowers, often followed by colourful berries.
'Aureomarginata' is a compact evergreen shrub with leathery dark green leaves narrowly edged with yellow, and clusters of fragrant purplish-pink flowers, white within, in early spring.
Grow in moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, but not dry, soil in sun or part shade. Mulch to keep roots cool. Tolerant of deep shade. Will not tolerate root disturbance and so resents transplanting.
