Daphne x burkwoodii 'Moonlight Sonata'

Daphne x burkwoodii 'Moonlight Sonata' (Daphne x burkwoodii)

I got this in 2013 and wasn't sure it would survive long since 'Brigg's Moonlight' seems to die so easily. It's growing slow and still hasn't flowered but I love the foliage and am grateful that it is still alive. I have taken cuttings but they root a lot slower than other Daphnes.

The foliage is interesting enough and the plant looks wonderful without the flowers. I love it. I put it in my favorites for future reference.

It was just released a couple years ago, if you're looking for one I know a lot of mail order nurseries sell it. It's a beautiful plant, especially after a few seasons when it gets some size to it. I agree about the foliage, I've heard this variety doesn't flower as freely as most Daphnes but I didn't want it for the flowers, they're just a nice bonus.

You have some nice Daphne collection, Rkwright. I have only winter daphne and was able to propagate couple more plants from it. I hope that this will show up here on the Island one day. It is on my list to watch for.
