Daphne x burkwoodii 'Somerset Gold Edge'

If you are looking for strong variegated foliage in a daphne, then Daphne x burkwoodii 'Somerset Gold Edge' would be the one to look for.

Much more prominent markings than other variegated species and cultivars and a fairly hardy plant as well. We have seen it grown as a standard, certainly very attractive and unusual.


Best in a part shaded position, deep shade is not really suitable. A humus rich well mulched soil with good drainage is essential.


Pruning can be carried out either by tip pruning by taking a few flowers each season, or by pruning back by 2 - 3 inches each year immeadiatly after flowering.
