GROWTH HABIT: Upright, mounded shrub with dense growth.
HARDINESS: Zone 7 - 9
CULTURE: Sun to light shade. Light shade in the winter is beneficial; the north side of a building works well. Soil should be loose, moist, well-drained and near neutral pH, though D. odora is not as particular about soil types as some Daphne, and also seems to bear transplanting better. Perhaps best treated as a short-lived plant.
