Skimmia × confusa 'Kew Green' (male)

skimmia (male)

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit
2 litre pot £19.99
  • Position: partial to full shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A compact, dome-shaped or taller evergreen shrub (it can be quite variable), with dense clusters of fragrant, creamy-white flowers, which open over several weeks in late winter and spring. This award-winning shrub is perfect for illuminating a shady shrub border or woodland garden. Requiring little routine pruning, it's useful for 'anchoring' taller, upright plants and pollinating female skimmias planted close by.

  • Garden care: Lightly trim after flowering, if necessary. To improve the moisture retention qualities of the soil add plenty of well-rotted compost when planting.
