Sarcococca hookeriana v. digyna 'Purple Stem'

Pot Size: 2 litre
Price: £20.00
A distinct selection of this variety found in Eastern China in the mountains of Sichuan and Yunnan. Forming a slowly creeping clump of upright slender stems to 1.5m, attractively stained dark reddish-purple as are the stalks of the intoxicatingly scented inflorescences. Which appear in the upper axils of the narrow leaves in late winter-early spring followed by mat-black spherical fruits which can persist until the following winter. Easily grown in partial to full shade best in a moist soil, but are drought tolerant. Good on chalk.
