Daphne ‘Zuuiko Nishiki’

Daphne Zuiko NishikiScent in the garden has long been a favorite for many, and winter blooming daphne is one of our perennial favorites.  This season Squak Mt. introduces a new daphne, ‘Zuiko Nishiki’ to bring fragrance and color to your landscape.


Each February glossy, dark green leaves are topped by clusters of dark rosy-pink buds bursting into pink-white blooms.  The flowers introduce the heavenly scent that daphnes are famous for. This rounded, well-branched shrub will grow to be only 3-4’ high and wide, perfect for a smaller garden.


Plant this evergreen shrub in a partial shade location with good drainage. ‘Zuiko Nishiki’ is similar to an old favorite Daphne odora ‘Maginata’, but is noted to be more compact and easier to transplant and grow.  Come experience the fragrance of daphne at Squak Mt. today.
