Due to the winter weather, orders from these states will ship in the spring, April to May: CA, CO, IA, ID, KS, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NV, OR, SD, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY. And due to the extreme cold and wind which we experienced through the Christmas holidays of December 2022, many Osmanthus varieties won't be shipped until we are assured there is no cold damage. This may be as late as April or May, 2023. We may choose to delay shipping other plants as well.

Regular price $22.00 Sale

Ruscus-leafed Sarcococca. This species is often confused with S. confusa, but it is distinct in that it has red berries which stay red even when mature. The foliage is very similar in size to S. confusa, but it is a little wider and slightly more flat (S. confusa being slightly wavy). The ultimate size appears to be in the neighborhood of 4', with the same white, fragrant, winter flower of the species. It is somewhat more cold-tender than S. confusa, probably zones 7b-9. W. China and Tibet. Sarcococcas are some of the best evergreen, dry shade shrubs imaginable. 

Zones 7-9
