Daphne burkwoodii Astrid (or Variegated Daphne

Daphne burkwoodii Astrid originated in Central Europe. An exceptionally hardy plant, this semi-evergreen shrub reaches a height of about 1m and a width of around 1m, which makes it a favoured border plant. It grows in a vase-like fashion and is an ideal shrub for limited garden space.

From May to July, Daphne burkwoodii Astrid produces an abundance of highly fragrant flowers that appear in terminal clusters. At first, the blossoms look white but they soon develop a deep pink hue. The flower bundles make an eye-catching contrast set against the plant’s glossy variegated foliage. Butterflies and other garden visitors are drawn to the highly fragrant flowers. In ideal growing circumstances, the shrub has been known to flower again in the autumn. 

For best growth, plant Daphne burkwoodii Astrid in a sunny or partially shaded location. The plant prefers rich, fertile soil that is slightly acidic. It does not tolerate wet feet and prefers well-draining soil conditions. It does do well during periods of drought. Ideally, the plant should have a layer of rich mulch around its base to keep the soil cool, moist, and maintain humidity around the plant. 

Variegated Daphne requires no pruning to flourish. Pruning can cause dieback on the plant and should be avoided unless absolutely necessary. If pruning must be done, it should be performed after flowering to remove dead or dying branches and help maintain its compact growth habit. Once established, the Daphne burkwoodii ‘Astrid’ does not tolerate being moved well. 

The name Greek name of burkwoodii was bestowed upon the shrub because of its resemblance to an olive tree. The name of Daphne was given to honor the daughter of the god of the Rivers.
