My NDN keeps asking me what her flowers are called and, as ever, I haven't a clue.  I did think this might be Daphne odorata?

I have to get one right at some point but worried this might not be that point  :/

    I would have said Daphne providing it is scented.

  • Looks just like my Daphne odora aureomarginata

    Definitely a Daphne (gorgeous) - and @rachelQrtJHBjb is right, the very thin yellow leaf margins makes it an aureomarginata.  Love them 💕

    Mine has been severely frost damaged this winter.

    That is such a shame @punkdoc as you can see the one next door is looking lovely.

    My neighbour chopped a bit off for me to take the picture and the smell is gorgeous, do you think I could root the piece?  Are they easy to root? It would be lovely to have a few more flowers around at this time of year.

    Still trying to 'get into' flowers so I'm up for any freebies as I can regret their demise but not the cost  :D
