Description

This compact, evergreen shrub is a popular choice for borders and patio containers, where plants will provide colour and interest all year round. Skimmia japonica 'Rubella' is a male clone bearing rosettes of glossy, aromatic leaves. The evergreen foliage is punctuated by red buds through the winter, with an explosion of potent, fragrant white blossoms appearing by spring. This trouble free shrub is tough and long-lasting making it ideal for beginners and those with less experience in gardening. Perfect for a neglected, shady spot in the garden. Height and spread: 120cm (47").

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 Skimmia plants in a dappled or fully shaded position, in moderately fertile, rich, well drained soil which can be neutral to acidic in pH. Avoid full sun, as this can cause yellowing of the leaves. Alternatively grow Skimmia in large containers, using a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3 mixed with ericaceous (acidic) compost.
More Info
Skimmia plants will require very little pruning. After flowering, trim them lightly to keep a good shape, and remove any dead or damaged growth.
