Evan's Birthday Daphne
I planted this Daphne odora "Marginata" on the 1 year anniversary of my son Evan's death. That was back in November, 2007. It was a wee, little thing, but I had high hopes. It's in a fairly shady spot for the summer months, but gets loads of sun in winter. I wasn't sure how it would perform, honestly. But, I can say now that I'm pleased! It's slowly getting bigger and has loads of blooms. It bloomed this year on Evan's birthday, which is part of the reason why I planted it in his honor.
