Fragrant Mountain Sweet Box
Fragrant flowers in the shade!
Do you need to give your shady garden areas a refresh? Fragrant Mountain Sweet Box (Sarcocca hookeriana var humilis 'Fragrant Mountain') is an easy-to-grow shrub that will give your shady spaces the jolt of new life that they need.
Fragrant Mountain loves the shade and has a neat, clean look that shines in the landscape. It has rich evergreen leaves that cover the large bush all year. It can handily reach 5’ tall and 6’ wide, but can also be pruned and used as a great groundcover.
In the spring fragrant flowers in a pure satin white emerge that perfume the air with a hyacinth-like scent. If you can plant it near a path, door or window, you should. The scent alone is worth the price of the plant. The flowers are followed by glossy black fruit that attracts birds.
Fragrant Mountain doesn’t shrink in the shade and will give your shady areas a huge punch of life in both form and fragrance. They do well in those challenging north-facing spots as well as the dry shade of some woodland gardens. It handles urban conditions as well – compacted soils, road salt and smog don’t seem to faze it. Deer tend to avoid it too.
Don’t let those hard-to-fill areas of your garden or landscape go bare for another year. Order your Fragrant Mountain Sweet Box from us today!
