Description
Also known as the Christmas Box, this dwarf, suckering, evergreen shrub forms a neat carpet of glossy green leaves. More commonly used as groundcover, creamy-white flowers appear from November to May, filling the air around with a fragrance of honey-scented vanilla. Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis is included on the list of RHS plants for pollinators, so is sure to attract many birds and animals to your garden. Once established, it requires little maintenance and tolerates a wide range of conditions – even difficult spots in dry/shade. A useful plant for borders, shady woodlands and containers, or grown as a low, informal hedge. Height: 100cm (39”). Spread: 100cm (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 any unwanted suckers from the base of the plant.
