Here is the Daphne x burdwoodii ‘Silveredge’ rooted cutting I got from Arrowhead Alpines. It’s supposed to be a superior plant to the more ubiquitous D. ‘Carol Mackie’ but it’s tiny, as you can see. Tiny plants get lost easily once transplanted and all transplants are susceptible to sun scald.
My solution was to take one of the many rusted tomato cages that came with the house, cut off the wire legs, and turn it upside down. It keeps the plant from being trampled and makes it easy to see and weed around. If you cut a piece of shade cloth as long as the cage, you can attach it to the cut off wire stubs and it will add a bit of protection from the sun while the plant settles in. When you’re done, you can stack them up. If you put corks or some other protection on the ends of the wire stakes, you could keep them on and not lose the cage’s original function.
