Daphniphyllum macropodum 'Ki Midori Nakafu'
Ki Midori Nakafu Daphniphyllum. This is another variegated Daphniphyllum, but unlike 'Mountain Dove,' which is a D. teijsmannii, this selection is a D. macropodum, which is a larger and more robust grower. The Japanese say that this species is more cold-hardy as well. This cultivar has a central yellowish-green center with green margins, and when grown in more sun, it has beautiful red petioles. As with all Daphniphyllum, we have never had a deer so much as nibble on one, but that's not to say they won't ever. These are all grafted specimens and we have a very limited number available. Hopefully, next year we will have more. This genus is dioecious, but I do not know the sex of this selection because it has yet to flower for us. When I posted them on our site, they were gone within a week.
