Flame red buds open to white flowers
Well-shaped domes of neat, evergreen foliage are topped with pretty clusters of scented, pale pink flowers in spring. As these fade, glossy red berries will develop if there is a male Skimmia nearby. These fruits last well into winter, making this shrub a seasonal joy. It will happily grow in a pot filled with ericaceous compost on a patio or balcony, as long as it is not left to bake in full sun all day, and is kept well watered during the growing season. Alternatively, it makes a wonderful under-storey in a woodland setting, or will add structure to a mixed border.
