Today’s photo is from Erica Glasener in Atlanta, Georgia. She says: “This is Daphne odora ‘Aureomarginata Alba’ (USDA Hardiness Zones 7 to 9).  A mouthful but a great evergreen shrub in full bloom now at the Atlanta Botanical Garden here in Georgia.  Fragrant, fragrant, fragrant says it all. What could be better?” Thanks for sending in this great photo, Erica!

    Love this shrub, I have one right now in my yard, blooming, just as this picture shows. It is one of my favorite, wish I had more. It blooms before anything else and the scent is so lovely! I live in Marietta, Ga.
