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.

Blooms March – April.

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