Sarcococca Hookeriana Var. Digyna (Sweet Box)


Sarcococca Hookeriana Var. Digyna (Sweet Box)

Lovely fragrant flowers


Clusters of small, creamy-white, tassel-like flowers and slender, mid- to dark green leaves. This compact, thicket-forming shrub is perfect for planting below a window, close to an entrance or path. Excellent evergreen groundcover for a moist, shady spot, the unassuming flowers are deceptive - their vanilla-like scent is one of the headiest winter fragrances.
