Sarcococca brevifolia - GWJ9483

Pot Size: 5 litre
Price: £50.00
A new species to cultivation from a most unlikely location, that we happened across while searching for Disporum on the Horton Plain in the high mountains of Sri Lanka in the winter of 2002. Where it formed variable evergreen shrubs to 1.5m tall, with bright glossy green closely set ovate-orbicular leaves to 10 cm long in shelter, but only quarter of that in exposed sites. With axillary clusters of yellow fragrant flowers close to the ends of the branches, beyond the ovoid green fading purple fruit resulting from the previous year's flowers. Best grown in shelter from freezing winds in any type of fertile soil that does not dry out.
