Valentine's Day

When Shane told me he really wanted this Daphne plant that his old roommate had kept for years, and it's so pretty and it smells so good, and even went so far as to bring a piece of it home in hopes to root it, I got excited!

So I searched online after local nurseries had none... And sure enough, Garden Growerhad it! It made it all the way from Oregon arriving the day before Valentine's Day! Whew!

Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata', Varigated Winter Daphne, is an evergreen shrub with long glossy green leaves with yellow edges. FRAGRANT flowers as is the case with the family in general. We're keeping this one as a houseplant here, out in the summer and in in the winter as it is zone 6.
