Daphne × burkwoodii 'Carol Mackie' (Daphne)

Daphne 'Carol Mackie', Burkwood Daphne 'Carol Mackie'


Prized for its brilliant variegated foliage, Daphne × burkwoodii 'Carol Mackie' (Daphne) is a small, rounded, semi-evergreen shrub with delightfully fragrant clusters of pale pink flowers in late spring. Persisting well into winter, the foliage of oblong, gray-green leaves, 2 in. long (5 cm), is adorned by striking, golden margins that mature to creamy-white. Fluttering above the foliage, the blossoms give way to tiny red fruits in fall. A compact and highly ornamental flowering shrub that is perfect for small gardens.

  • Densely-branched, rounded, this flowering shrub grows to 2-3 ft. tall (60-90 cm) with a spread of 3-4 ft. (90-120 cm).
  • A part shade lover, this plant is best grown in rich, sandy-humusy, moist, neutral, well-drained soils. Protect from winter winds. Provide summer mulch to keep roots cool. Often slow to establish, this shrub resents transplanting.
  • Plant as a specimen, or in shrub borders, woodland gardens. Great for foundation plantings.
