It’s still cold outside but gradually we are starting to feel the start of Spring. The Daphne Odora Aureomarginata are in full flower and their scent is heavenly. Flowering started just around Valentine’s Day. They are fully hardy outside but we have put some indoors as the scent fills the air. The buds come through bright pink/purple and then the small delicate light pink flowers appear and are highly scented. Flowering should last until at least the end of March. Daphne are such a useful plant as they are a small, compact, evergreen shrubs so keep their leaves year round, unlike so many other fragrant and flowering Spring shrubs.
