Description
Similar to other Sarcococca's, ruscifolia reaches its peak in the middle of winter, boasting small white flowers with a backdrop of glossy, dark, evergreen foliage. Perfect for groundcover in conditions which other shrubs struggle to tolerate, this Christmas Box will fill the air with a strong scent of sweet vanilla in January and February. Small scarlet berries appear after flowering providing even more interest in the winter garden. Once established, requires little maintenance and will grow where other plants and shrubs often struggle. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 80cm (31").

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.
