Sarcococca hookeriana 'Purplerijl'

Sweet Box - Sweet & Lo™

An extra bushy, fully bodied selection with glossy, dark green foliage and attractive deep purple stems. Its late winter/early spring blooms are a treat for early pollinators, with thread-like, red-tipped white flowers that emit a delightful jasmine-like fragrance. Used in mass plantings or in a container, this very durable, versatile shrubby ground cover is perfect for even the shadiest locations. Growers will love how much faster it is to finish than other sarcococca and its irresistibly tidy container presentation.
