Description

You can enjoy winter colour and fragrance in your garden with this ever-popular, easy to grow shrub, Sarcococca. The flowers of Sarcococca confusa might be inconspicuous, and hide beneath the leathery foliage, but you won't miss their powerful, honey-like fragrance. The flowers are followed by black berries, which stay on the plant for a long time.

Christmas Box is a versatile, evergreen shrub that needs little maintenance and can tolerate many different garden situations, especially difficult areas such as dry shade. A useful plant for shady borders or growing in large containers near to the home, where the fragrance can be enjoyed. Height: 2m (6.6'). Spread: 1m (39").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow sarcococca in any moist, well drained garden soil in a sheltered position, in semi-shade or shade. Christmas box will tolerate full sun provided that the soil remains moist. Alternatively grow sarcococca plants in patio containers using soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until young shrubs become established. Once established, Sarcococca will require little attention and often thrives on neglect. Pruning is not required other than to shape the plant if required, and to remove and unwanted suckers from the base of the plant.
