Description

  • Compact bushy evergreen shrub
  • Sweetly scented cream-white flowers
  • Produces dark large berries enjoyed by birds

This evergreen highly fragrant shrub gives you attractive glossy leaves all year round on tidy compact plants that make fantastic hedges and windbreaks.

In the winter months you’ll be struck by the heavenly vanilla scent of the flowers which are followed by large dark glossy berries favoured by birds, helping to feed them throughout the colder months. It is great grown as a hedge or singly in containers as a scented centrepiece surrounded by winter-flowering irises or winter-flowering pansies.

If you grow box in your garden or on your vegetable plot as a windbreak and it’s succumbed to box blight – making it look sick, bare and unhealthy here is a fantastic alternative.

How your plant will arrive:

This shrub will arrive to you in a large 3-litre pot. On arrival gently lift the plant out of the pot to check there are lots of roots showing on the sides of the soil.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you can't plant up your shrub straight away, remove the sacking or polythene, and keep your potted plant in a sunny position. Keep the soil moist by watering each day. Look to planting into its permanent position within 5-7 days.
