The Christmas Box. So named for it’s small glossy leaves, which I actually find more attractive than box. Sarcococca is renowned for it’s heavily scented flowers in February, which although inconspicuous in appearance, small creamy things, are borne abundantly and can’t easily be missed by the nose. A good plant to place near the front door, and will stand a container. Will tolerate most conditions, but leaves are a much darker green with a bit of shade. Although we sometimes offer other varieties, we have found this species to be a more robust pant than others with flowers as good as any.
