Daphne Carol Mackie- Daphne burkwoodii 'Carol Mackie'

This is one of our favorite plants here at Moodscapes. A fragrant plant in the spring, the Carol Mackie blooms both in the spring and again in the fall. The branches are covered with long green leaves with cream colored margins that turn bronze in fall and persist until early winter.
