Sarcococca hookeriana v. hookeriana - HWJK2102

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £30.00
An invaluable winter flowering evergreen suckering-shrub, which we collected fruit of on steep open mountain above Cheng in the Upper Arun Valley, Eastern Nepal in 2002 with Dan Hinkley at 2800m. Where this gregarious shrub with leathery lanceolate leaves had formed large colonies with flexuous stems to only 60cm tall. Bearing black fruit in the upper leaf axils, succeeding the highly scented white purple tipped staminate flowers January-April. Very shade tolerant, easily grown in any fertile soil, good on chalk.
