Perfect evergreen for dry shade! 

Some areas are tough on plants. One of the most difficult has always been dry shade. You know the spots – under the old tree in the back yard, the spot where the street tree has become overgrown, the small area in the side yard between your house and the neighbors. It is hard to find a plant that will not only thrive there, but look good doing it. And if that plant can actually produce scented flowers – wow!

You know what? We have the perfect plant for you! Fragrant Sweetbox (Sarcococca ruscifolia) will happily live in these tough conditions. Not only will it live there, but it will give you weeks of small but intensely scented flowers that will perfume your garden with the scent of hyacinths.

Fragrant Sweetbox will slowly grow to 3’ - 5’ tall and wide. It is a great plant to naturally espalier against a wall. It is densely covered in lush deep green foliage that makes it a nice backdrop to garden elements like statuary or fountains or intensely colored flowers. It is perfect for foundation plantings to cover vents, utilities, footings or other unsightly spots around your home or business.

Fragrant Sweetbox is resistant to both deer and rabbits and is disease resistant, too! It is water-wise and doesn’t need coddling at all. It is easy to grow and easy to maintain.

Stop looking at that eyesore spot in your garden. Order Fragrant Sweetbox from us today!
