Description
Perfect for giving all-year interest in a shady spot in the garden, Skimmia japonica 'Rubella' makes a neat mound of glossy rosettes of aromatic evergreen foliage. Distinctive red buds bring colour throughout the winter months, opening as deliciously fragrant white blooms in spring. This shrub is easy to grow in neutral or acidic soil or can be grown in a container on the patio in ericaceous compost. Tough and long lasting, Skimmia is a good choice for beginner gardeners. Height and spread: 120cm (47").


1 x 9cm potted skimmia plant (45015)

How to Grow
Grow Skimmia plants in a dappled or fully shaded position, in moderately fertile, rich, well drained soil which can be neutral to acidic in pH. Avoid full sun, as this can cause yellowing of the leaves. Alternatively grow Skimmia in large containers, using a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3 mixed with ericaceous (acidic) compost.
More Info
Skimmia plants will require very little pruning. After flowering, trim them lightly to keep a good shape, and remove any dead or damaged growth.
