Mountain Dove Variegated Daphniphyllum.  When I first visited Japan, this was the most impressive plant that I saw. It was truly spectacular and all of us that saw it wanted a plant. Even in Japan, they were quiet expensive. In 2014 we had an ice storm to end all ice storms, and after cleaning up for two weeks, I realized that my Mountain Dove was under a 4' pile of pine boughs. Upon uncovering it, every branch had been stripped from my parent plant. So I took the wilted branches, soaked them in Super Thrive and grafted them. Amazingly, three of them "took." Even in Japan where I observed a nurserymen growing this plant, their grafting results were not very high. From these I have built up a few. There is a real specimen in the shade house at the J. C. Raulston Arboretum at NCSU in Raleigh. I would recommend planting this in filtered sun or morning sun and afternoon shade. I gifted a one gallon plant to the J. C. Raulston Arboretum for their spring festival and auction and it went for over $400.00. This selection is best grown in filtered sun or part shade.
