Midweek with Mark

"Daphne, Edgeworthia, and Relatives"
Mark Weathington, Director

  • Wednesday, February 8, 2023 – 3:00 pm3:45 pm

Winter is a fantastic time for fragrant flowers, and there's no better evidence for this than the distinguished members of the Thymelaeaceae plant family. Our lath house is about to be absolutely inundated with the sweet scents produced by the likes of Daphne odora and Edgeworthia chrysantha, so we thought it would be a good time to sit down and sing the praises of this estimable family. Come and join Mark as he shows off some of the great specimens we keep at the JCRA, and be ready to be tempted into planning a trip out to the arboretum so you can smell for yourself what we're so excited about!

Daphne for days
