This is a compact, evergreen bush producing small, creamy-white flowers that release a powerful and pervasive, rich honey scent into the air. These are borne between December and March above slender, glossy dark green leaves which reflect the light well.
It’s perfect for planting outside a window or near an entrance or path so that the intense perfume can be fully appreciated. The flowers are followed by small, spherical, glossy black berries, which remain for a long time and can also appear at the same time as the flowers.
It’s useful for growing in dark corners and thrives under trees in as woodland garden situation. A low maintenance variety that’s generally disease-free and tolerant of urban pollution, dry shade and neglect.
