Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis partial shade  shade lover

This superb Himalayan denizen brings evergreen elegance and heavenly winter fragrance to a shady locale.

Copious, tiny white flowers and round blue-black fruit heighten allure.

Tailor-made for hedging, entrance ways or the woodland garden, Dwarf Sweetbox keeps deer at bay, appreciates regular watering, and an annual shearing to maintain its dashing appearance.

Blooms March – April.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
