Description:

Although often prized as a pollenizer, this handsome, densely branched, naturally dome-shaped, mounded shrub is a true showman. Glossy, rich green, aromatic foliage backs large, full clusters of tiny but showy, deep reddish pink buds that open to very fragrant, creamy white, star-shaped flowers in the spring. An excellent landscape accent. Evergreen.

Design Ideas: The male skimmia is mostly used to make sure the female sets fruit, but the male plant is a fine shrub by itself with showy, fragrant flower clusters. As with the female, keep out of the sun and provide adequate moisture year-round.

Grows easily in organically rich, moist, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish root system; once established, water as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune annually to shape.
