Sarcococca Winter Gem


SARCOCOCCA WINTER GEM is perfect for brightening a shady spot but equally loves a sunny spot too. During February until April, the glossy foliage becomes smothered with dainty, highly fragrant flowers looking just like a fresh fall of snow. Known as Sweet Box so it’s perfect for low fragrant hedging, growing to a height of 60cm (24") and spread 45cm (18").

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
