Sarcococca

Sarcococca hookeriana ssp. var. humilis partial shade  shade lover  new plant

This tiptop Himalayan denizen lends evergreen finery and heavenly winter fragrance to a shady locale. Crafting a low, well-groomed textural ground cover, slowly creeping stolons sprout 18 in. stems clad in lustrous, dark green narrow leaves. Copious, tiny white flowers and round blue-black fruit heighten allure. Tailor-made for hedging, enhancing entrance ways or carpeting the woodland garden, Dwarf Sweetbox keeps deer at bay, appreciates regular watering and an annual shearing to maintain its dashing appearance.

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