Discover the delightful Sarcococca confusa, also known as the Christmas Box or Sweet Box. This adaptable and reliable shrub is easy to grow in various environments and soil conditions. Whether in a dense shaded area or exposed to the full sun, the Sarcococca confusa continues to bloom. This fragrant evergreen's glossy foliage might bleach slightly in the sun, but its beauty remains resilient.
In mid-winter, the shrub blossoms with tiny creamy-white flowers that exude a sweet vanilla fragrance, offering a charming scent during the colder months. As the winter wanes, the flowering shrub yields shiny red berries which transition to black and may linger throughout the harsh frost.
Originating from China, this bushy shrub grows to a mature height of 3-5 feet, forming a loose mound in its youth, which densifies into a rounded form with age. It thrives and blooms in partial to full shade conditions and can tolerate most soil and pH types, a testament to its adaptability.
This hardy plant is deer and rabbit-resistant, and it can withstand pollution and drought if planted in the shade. With a slow to moderate growth rate, and a hardy nature suitable to zones 7 through 9, Sarcococca confusa is well suited to a variety of landscapes. Whether used as a border, hedge, screen, or patio lining, its year-round greenery, sweetly scented winter flowers, and winter-lingering berries will make a stunning addition to your home garden.
