New Plant: Sarcococca humulis 'Fragrant Valley'

Sarcococca humulis 'Fragrant Valley'
Fragrant Valley’ Sarcococca is a vigorous, yet compact, broadleaf evergreen with year round interest.

Glossy green, narrow leaves form the foundation from which small, but extremely fragrant, pink-tipped white flowers appear in late winter. Small non-edible black berries offer further interest thereafter.

This versatile plant is relatively maintenance free and also offers a greater resistance to disease than other Sweetbox varieties. It can be used in mass plantings, low borders, small hedges and even in containers.

Excellent when used near entranceways where it’s delicious winter scent can be experienced. Best grown in well drained soils in shade to part shade locations.

Grows 1-2 feet in height and 2-3 feet in width. Bred by Sidhu & Sons Nursery and is available at Art’s Nursery and other fine independent garden centres.
