Sarcococca 'Digyna'


Sarcococca 'Digyna' (Sarcococca hookeriana (Sweet box))

Lovely small evergreen shrub which is fully flowering now, and the scent is really lovely. It grows in shade too, which makes it even more special.

I have that one too bik, and another one...S. ruscifolia...but it is very like confusa, I don't think I can tell them apart....maybe a lighter shade of green. Digyna is. very different and my favourite. They are all treasures though because of the lovely scent, and their tolerance of shade! :)
