Sarcococca zeylanica - BSWJ10166

Pot Size: 5 litre
Price: £50.00
Another new species we are introducing into cultivation which formed an arching shrub to 3m tall with green stems bearing long elliptic dark glossy green leaves 10cm long by only 2.5cm wide, distinctly 3-veined at their bases. With axillary upright spikes of greenish-yellow scented flowers, while still retaining a mass of fruit resulting from the previous year's flowering, which were black small ellipsoid with two terminal stigmatic protrusions. The epithet may not be obvious to non-Latin scholars, but translates to Ceylon which of course is now Sri Lanka, where this species grows in the high altitude mountains. Best grown in shelter from freezing winds in any type of fertile soil that does not dry out.
