Help with Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata'


By Lean

Bristol, United Kingdom Gb

I have just identified a shrub as Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata'- it didnt flower last year and doesnt look promising this year although the leaves look healthy - any advice - it does look a bit 'leggy'



Oh dear, Lean,
I have a large one of these which used to flower abundantly every year but now it has had very few the last three years. I don't know about yours but mine has gone yellowish with distorted leaves at the growing point although I've given it acid feed and sprayed for pests. My daughter suggested it was a virus disease although some authorities say they just are not long lived. I'm afraid its for the chop! Have you tried feeding with sequestrene or other acid feed?
