Plant Profile: Sarcococca confusa

Sarcococca Sweet Box

Need a plant that loves dry shade? Sweet Box has been growing under my eave line on the south side of the house for years and still looks lush. With the occasional water every now-and-then it will absolutely thrive providing deep green foliage and highly fragrant flowers.
