Sar­co­cocca hook­e­ri­ana ‘Win­ter Gem’

Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

The fra­grance of this hardy hy­brid is likely to hit you be­fore you’ve even caught sight of its spec­tac­u­lar white flow­ers, which emerge from red buds and are fol­lowed by glossy red berries that blacken with age. This is a stun­ning form of sweet box that’s espe­cially use­ful be­cause it’ll thrive in shade and fill the cold win­ter air with its jas­mine-like scent.

You’ll smell this sweet box be­fore you see it!
