The Sweet Box, Sarcococca hookeriana ‘Purple Stem’, has attributes that few other plants can match. Thriving in shade, it is not only colourful but also fragrant in winter. Initially purple-pink stems carry narrow, dark green leaves and sweetly scented white flowers, tinged pink. Pollinators love these winter flowers too, and the show continues with long-lasting, deep blue fruits. It’s manageable in size at around 1.5m height and spread and just requires trimming and tidying in early spring.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. 

Water shrubs regularly in the first year after planting and in dry periods
