Sarcococca hookeriana humilis
Evergreen, Ground covers, Shrubs
Though its small white flowers are nearly hidden among waxy evergreen leaves, Sarcococca’s fragrance can perfume much of the winter garden. Small berrylike fruit follows. Shade tolerance gives these handsome shrubs special value under overhangs, in entryways, and beneath low-branching evergreen trees. Plants maintain slow, orderly growth and polished appearance in deepest shade. They also tolerate sun in cool-summer climates if the soil is not allowed to become too dry. Best in organically enriched soil. Scale insects are the only pests.Sarcococca hookeriana humilis
