A slow growing, evergreen shrub with pointed leathery oval shaped leaves. The flowers, sometimes fragrant are white or greenish.
Female and hermaphrodite forms produce red, white or black berries in the autumn.
Skimmia's like light shade but will tolerate deeper shade.
Plant in any soil as long as it's not too wet or very dry.
If planted in very dry or poor soil the shrub will struggle. The leaves will start turning yellow and become spindly. For best results plant in a John innes no 3 compost.
Only female Skimmia's have berries but do need a male form growing near by for pollination, in order to produce them.
Perfect for a shady autumn garden border or grow in a container.
