Daphniphyllum macropodum - False Daphne

Daphniphyllum macropodum

False Daphne

The large shiny evergreen leaves of False Daphne give a tropical effect, often augmented by distinct reddish color on the petioles and young stems. Also known by the colorful common name of 'Redneck Rhododendron' in the South because the foliage looks similar to Rhododendron maximum, only more showy. Plants are dioecious, so you need several plants to get the glaucous blue summer fruit.
