    Overview

    These little evergreen shrubs all flower in midwinter. The delicious vanilla fragrance from the tiny blooms wafts across the garden. Sarcococca hookeriana and Sarcococca ruscifolia are similar, the former bearing blackberries during the summer and the latter red ones. Glossy foliage which glows in the darkness beneath taller plants and a dense spreading habit make these shrubs attractive all year.
