'Kew Green' skimmia
Skimmias are evergreen shrubs with glossy green leaves and aromatic flowers or berries. The variety 'Kew Green' is one of the best varities: it is compact, free-flowering, fragrant and tolerant of dry conditions. Skimmias are best out of full sun, where the leaves can become bleached or burned. Once established, this variety is very tolerant of dry shade, making it a very good choice for a low maintenance city garden where light levels are low and there is often less rainfall. It is also an excellent choice for a container. Maximum size 120 cms x 120 cms. 3 litre container, 30-40 cms.
