Winter Daphne

I have a winter daphne that is about 4 years old. It has never bloomed. It is variegated; the plant identification and information tag said it was a winter daphne. I am wondering if what I have is really a winter daphne. Any clues as to why it has not bloomed? It has grown nicely. It is about 5 feet tall now. I bought this plant because the blooms smell SO good.

There are a couple of things that might cause the plant not to bloom. The usual reasons are either that it is not getting enough sun or it is lacking phosphorus. For the sun, even though this is a shade plant, there is such thing as too much shade. If you have it in deep shade, see if you can thin out what is blocking the sun and get it a bit more light. Also, give it some bone meal. This will give it some phosphorus, which it needs to be able to bloom.

Daphne Odora

My Daphne has lost all its leaves but has still flowered this spring. It was fed last year with a solution containing iron, but still no leaves. Is it time to dig it out and start again?

If your Daphne recently flowered, it is probably doing fine, and the leaf drop is just a temporary problem. Sudden temperature changes or an inconsistent water supply could cause leaf drop. Also, check your plant for any visible pests.

Here are some general reasons a plant may drop its leaves:
