This FRAGRANT slow growing dwarf Daphne is most noted for its outstanding variegated foliage. This hybrid is a cross between D. cneorum and D. caucasica. To me, it looks most like Daphne caucasica, and has flowers that match that species. The species name, x burkwoodii, honors the brothers Albert and Arthur Burkwood who were English nurserymen and plant hybridists. The dense and full deciduous shrub will typically grow to 2-3 ft tall with a rounded, mounding habit. Features fragrant clusters of pale pink flowers in late spring which are followed by tiny red drupes (1/3" wide) in fall. Oblong, grayish-green leaves (to 2" long) have striking, cream-edged margins, and the foliage often persists well into December.
