I love these Christmas Boxes. They are perfect for a half shady position, and will delight in winter with their fabulous scented flowers. This species has ellipitic dark green glossy leaves and rarely reaches more than 60 cm in height.
This form is far less common in cultivation than the more well known S. ruscifolia var. chinensis and distinguished by its broader stouter leaves. Makes a small compact evergreen shrub, delicious scent.
