The internet tells me it's an old-fashioned plant. The internet also tells me that its common name is 'mezereon.' Or 'spurge laurel.' Or 'garland flower.' Since I've never heard any of these combinations of words, I conclude they're all wrong.
Did I say 'flawed?' Daphnes have crummy roots. The plants flop over. They're hard as heck to move without killing them since fibrous roots are either non-existent or ridiculously delicate. The pictured specimen used to have a bigger base, but it fell over so that the stems were 20 degrees off vertical, so I cut the thing way back. Problem fixed!
