This is one of the most fragrant daphnes and as the name suggests, a Chinese species which grows quite happily in shade or dappled sunlight, but prefers some shelter from cold winds. The variegated form 'Aureomarginata' is hardier than the type, and an upright branching shrub with handsome creamy-yellow edged evergreen leaves, 8cm (3in) long and arranged in neat rosettes. The tubular flowers are small and fragrant, arranged in clusters at the shoot tips, and appearing early in the year. Plants like a cool moist rootrun, with good drainage.

My daphne adora is looking very sick this year, she is on her 3rd year in my garden. I had plenty of flowers for the first time this year but almost no leaves now the plant just looks bare. Leaves are only on a quarter of the plant, whilst all other branches are completely bare - what has gone wrong :(
My daphne has the opposite problem, it has grown too big for its' space. I cut it back by giving friends cuttings but it really needs a good pruning. Will it die or put on even more growth?
