Daphne x burkwoodii 'Gold Dust'

Daphne x burkwoodii 'Gold Dust'

A chance mutation of 'Silveredge' that showed up in Punnett's garden the leaf is internally misted with gold flecking, not all that impressive when viewed up close but form a distance it really stands out 'Carol Mackie' and 'Silveredge' pale in its presence. Habit is compact growing at about 2/3 the rate of 'Silveredge' it almost looks sheared. As with all variegated plants reversions are possible however, it has been incredibly stable to date, by far the best burkwoodii we grow.

Daphne x burkwoodii 'Silveredge'

If not the best known (Punnett scrounged this from somewhere in Canada although it apparently originated with Grootendorst in Holland in the 1950's) certainly the best performing of the variegated Burkwoodii clones, in fact its no contest. This is much more upright and taller in the garden, cuttings root easier and it re-blooms even better than Carol Mackie with less of the tendency to die without warning that Carol Mackie is so famous for. We grow them side-by-side in the garden and the verdict is overwhelming.
