Fragrant Mountain™ Himalayan Wonders Sweetbox
Sarcococca humilis 'Sarsid2' Fragrant Mountain™ PP# 19951
There can never be too many types of plants to fill in those troublesome dark shady corners. You need different shapes of leaves, different textures and colors and preferably some evergreen things that won’t leave you with bare spots in the dead of winter.
Part of the Himalayan Wonders series, Fragrant Mountain is a wonderful evergreen ground cover that will slowly fill in your shade garden trouble spots. Equally great in cottage gardens or in naturalized areas, Fragrant Mountain will provide a rich, deep green base for your other plants.
Only growing 2-3 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, these plants cover bare ground nicely with wider, darker and glossier leaves than other sweetbox you may have seen. Then in late winter and early spring, they bloom with exotic looking pink-tipped white flowers that deliver a cloud of hyacinth-like fragrance.
