Sarcococca Fragrant Valley™

Low-growing, Fragrant Evergreen Groundcover!

Plant Patent 19,942. Cultivar name: 'Sarsid1'

This nice little Sweetbox is perfectly named, for it will perfume your garden deliciously in late winter! Dotted with masses of small white blooms, Fragrant Valley™ wakes the garden from its long winter nap to begin another year of glory in the shade!

An evergreen shrub much smaller and more spreading than the species, Fragrant Valley™ reaches just 18 inches high but quickly spreads up to 3 feet across. It is very dense and well-branched, with glossy deep green foliage that is more narrow than other varieties. This gives it a finer texture and even more full, lush look.

The shrub is attractive year-round simply because of its foliage, but the sweet-scented late winter blooms add another merit to its charms. They persist for several weeks in late winter, and you will smell them rather than see them!

The perfect plant for troublesome dry shade, Fragrant Valley™ is a Canadian introduction that boasts greater uniformity in size than other cultivars. This means you can create a low hedge or ribbon of evergreen color in the garden without pruning or shaping. Very disease resistant and unappetizing to deer and rabbits, Sweetbox is easy to grow and maintain. Give it a try in your landscape this season for years of nonstop color and heavenly scent! Zones 5-9.
