Sarcococca Winter Gem

Both buds and blooms are striking!

Item # 27262
Winter is a hard season for garden, particularly if most of your colorful blooms don't open until Spring. That's why we adore Winter Gem! Its striking red buds open into pristine white honey-scented flowers in winter and are the first hints of life in early spring landscapes. These abundant, fragrant blooms open in clusters which are further enhanced by this shrub's large glossy leaves. Its charming blooms and attractive foliage alone make it a star in the landscape, but adding even more interest are its berries which start off red but soon mature to shiny black. Not only is this plant pleasing to the eyes and nose, but it is quite hardy and disease tolerant as well.Plant Winter Gem in partial shade in rich soil that is well drained and watch it flourish in your yard.

I originally saw this plant in the UK, but was not able to find it in the US until offered by Wayside Gardens. I ordered three plants last year. They were a bit small, but they arrived in good condition and were well packed. I protected them well over their first winter here in Zone 6. They all survived the winter and have done very well. One of the plants has just about doubled in size. I was reluctant to order from Wayside given some poor experiences years ago, but it looks like they are becoming much more reputable!
