These Sarcococca Confusa or Christmas Box are a lovely easy going garden plant with tiny scented flowers in late Winter.

A great gift for the garden, these evergreen bushes are currently looking nice and glossy with developing flower buds but they are a little smaller than pictured. These evergreen shrubs make a good long term gift for a winter garden and we will post some new pictures here as soon as we can.

Looking after your Scented Box
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
Scented Box or Christmas Box (Sarcococca confusa) are really outdoor plants, but when they are young they make decorative pot plants in a cool room, producing tiny fragrant flowers in the winter and early spring.
While your box is indoors, keep it as cool as you can and make sure there is plenty of natural light but not direct sunlight. An East or West facing window is ideal. Your box is hardy and will ideally prefer a shady outside spot if you have one and can even be planted out if the ground is soft enough.
Over time your evergreen box can grow into quite substantial bushes several feet high. They can be clipped into a hedge or neat topiary shapes or allowed to form a more naturally looking bush.
If your plant seems to be suffering indoors and prone to leaf drop, try putting it outside or in a cooler room. These are garden plants really and will always be happiest outdoors long term.
