Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis - Dwarf Sweet Box

A dwarf variety of sweet box suitable for even the smallest garden, Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis is a small, slow-growing, evergreen shrub with a dense, suckering habit. The small, elliptical leaves are glossy mid-green. From December to February, tiny, tassel-like, creamy-white flowers with crimson anthers appear, with a rich vanilla-like scent which is carried on the air. The flowers are followed by blue-black berries. Plant near a door or path to enjoy the beautiful scent to the full. Dwarf sweet box is an easy, trouble-free suckering shrub which can be used as ground cover, even in the shadiest corner.
