I have always found this to be the most prolific flowering of all my sarcococcas,and the prettiest foliage by far. It must like the Scottish soil.

Ahee'n'ahaa'n'ahoo'n'haw.
Gibberish, I know, but something I always utter, when anything Scottish is mentioned, here in Glasgow, most of whom thought it was Gaelic, at first, but can still raise a few laughs.

Yes, I don't blame you Kath? I had four in my last garden, but this one was the only one I brought here because it had always been in a pot. if I were to get any more, it would always be this variety. I think it is by far the prettiest.
