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.
