I took this picture while I was in Atlanta today. Does anyone know its name? I'm sorry for the fuzziness of the photo - I snapped it in a hurry.

The shrub is about 4 feet tall, and these clusters of white blooms are at the end of each branch. The leaves are glossy in texture, similar to an aucuba japonica.

Looks like Daphne Odora to me, Mine is pink tho - never saw a white one. Did you go to the Southeastern Flower show Dave? I was there all day making Tussie Mussies!! I was wearing YOUR sweatshirt!

Well done, Azalea!!! It certainly is a Daphne Odora. I'm not sure which variety it is, though...

This site: http://www.chanticleergarden.org/whatsblm2000/sept23.html shows a white flowered variegated Daphne cultivar, as 'Carol Mackia'.

This site: http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/profiles/daphne/index.shtml says: "'Bowles' Variety' has white flowers and yellow berries"

Well, that's good enough for me. Good id! :)

BTW - I wasn't in Atlanta for recreation, unfortunately. :( The flower show would have been great. Alas.

Think it may the one grown most often over here - Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata', which is hardier than the type which has plain green leaves, My mother has aureomarginata and i grow the type - hope to get some pictures up when i can get my new digital camera to talk to my puter. (Nikon sending new disc soon i hope)
