Sarcococca also known as Fragrant Sweet Boxwood!
What makes them a valued plant in the garden?
To start, it's a beautiful shrub with glossy, dark green leaves suited for shady areas! It has tiny white early spring flowers that are small, but extremely fragrant and the blooms are followed by bright red ornamental fruit which also gives it summer interest. It's an outstanding choice for dry shade gardens where other plants won't grow, and they are evergreen. 3' H x 5' W
Fragrance makes this an important shrub around windows, doors and outdoor living areas. Evergreen foliage is also ideal for covering up footings, vents, utilities and other unsightly spots around foundation planting. Deep green foliage is an exceptional background for artistic elements or intensely colored perennials. A great choice for shaded areas between buildings or where there is an influence of large old shade trees.
