Sarcococca hookeriana var digyna Purple Stem or more commonly known as Christmas Box or Sweet box is a relatively easy shrub to grow. It is one of the few reliable evergreen shrubs that flower during those drab winter months December to February. Flowers are delicate white, with pink tinge to the petals, and a very sweet fragrance that is unmistakeable. New shoots are tinted with a stunning dark purple to pink hue that gradually fades to the brownish stem colour. This feature of the “purple” stem makes this variety one of the best of the Christmas Box shrubs.
Where to Plant
Plant in full sun to partial shade, well-draining moist soil. When mature Sarcococca may tolerate a bit drier soil. Ultimate height 4-6ft in 10 years. Fully hardy
