Sarcococca hookeriana var. digyna

Sarcococca hookeriana var. digyna -Sweet Box

A dwarf variety of the species suitable for the smallest shady garden, Sarcococca hookeriana var. digyna is a small, slow-growing, evergreen shrub with a dense, rounded, suckering habit. The slender, pointed leaves are glossy mid-green, contrasting with the dark, purplish stems. From late winter to early spring, tiny, tassel-like, creamy-white flowers with pinkish-red anthers appear from reddish buds, with a rich vanilla scent, carried on the air. The flowers are followed by small black berries. Plant near a doorway or path to enjoy the lovely scent to the full. Sweet box is a reliable, trouble-free shrub, very attractive to pollinators.
