Sarcococca Confusa vs. Hookeriana-Digyna
West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
There is a contrasting information on Confusa & Hookeriana in terms of "Height" and "Speed of growth".
RHS website say that both have same max height on maturity whereas some nursery websites say that Confusa grows upto 4-6 feet and Digyna grows to 3-4 feet. A book called "Evergreen Expert" say opposite.. it says Confusa grows to 2.5-3 feet and say for taller variety choose Digyna.
I did search on this forum and had a look at the photos; but didn't find photos showing full growth.
Could anyone who have either of these varieties or both give me information on:
Height they have achived and over how many years.
I want to plant 3-4 of Sarcococca plants to create evergreen backdrop (for other dwarf front border plants) with winter interest next to my northeast facing housewall which is a shade in winter and part shade in summer. I want about 4-5 feet high growth and want to cover 15 feet border.
