Re-Skimmia japonica 'Fructu-albo'. Three questions. Can you tell me if this is the same as Wakehurst White?
Also, if anyone out there has this shrub, which male Skimmia have you planted with it to get berries? Was it successful?



The entry in my book reads "S. japonica 'Wakehurst White' (syn 'fructo-alba'), meaning its the same plant, just that fructo alba is an older name; you will need any male Skimmia nearby to get fruit, such as Kew Green, or Ruby King, for example.
