Fragrant Sweetbox Perfect Evergreen for Dry Shade

  • Fragrant Flowers
  • Water-wise
  • Easy Care
  • Dry Shade
  • Deer and Rabbit Resistant

Dry shade can be tough on plants, and we all have one of those spots. You know the one, under the old tree in the back yard, that corner of your yard where the sprinkler system misses, or in the side yard between your house and the neighbors. Anywhere you have dry shade, it can be a challenge to find a pretty plant that will thrive.

Well, how about some good news? Take a look at this variety of Fragrant Sweetbox (Sarcococca ruscifolia). It will live happily in these tough conditions, look great and produce scented flowers.

What a joy! Fragrant Sweetbox will give you weeks of bloom that smell like hyacinths. It is densely covered in lush deep green foliage that makes it a nice backdrop to flowers.

Fragrant Sweetbox is a great plant - perfect for foundation plantings to cover vents, utilities, footings or other unsightly spots around your home or business.

It's a tough plant! Fragrant Sweetbox is resistant to both deer and rabbits and is disease resistant, too. This water-wise variety won't need extra care. It is easy to grow and easy to maintain.

Order Fragrant Sweetbox from us today! You'll be so glad to get rid of that ugly eyesore with a beautiful, fragrant evergreen shrub.
