Sarcococca confusa (Christmas Box) is more rewarding than it looks! On still days in the winter, this plant produces a strong scent from the small white flowers carried on the evergreen foliage.
A medium sized hardy evergreen shrub suiting a shaded shrub border. Has clusters of very fragrant white flowers in the winter and dark green glossy leaves. A forgiving plant, it will tolerate full sun, but much prefers deep or partial shade in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist, but well-drained soil.
