Sarcococca Winter Gem, also known as Sweet Box, is the perfect plant to grow near a door, seat or window where the fragrance can truly be enjoyed. An evergreen, low growing compact shrub that will give interest in your garden all year round. In the depths of winter, the dainty white flowers almost cover the glossy foliage and belie the perfume factory that is held within them. Spherical, glossy, red berries that mature to black follow. Plant them in decorative pots as a doorstep dressing or alongside a walkway to be greeted with jasmine-like fragrance in the winter air. This plant truly is a little gem. Bred by Peter Moore at Hillier Nurseries, the incredibly glossy foliage that almost seems to have been polished by hand, creates a dense but neat shrub growing to an approximate height and spread of 50cm. Sarcococca Winter Gem is a trouble free, low maintenance beauty that grows well in sun or part shade, preferring well drained soil and is fully hardy so can be enjoyed all year round outside
