Plant of the Week - Skimmia ‘Rubella’19 February 2011
This handsome evergreen is the most popular of all Skimmia’s with red-margined leaves and dark red flower buds in autumn and winter, opening creamy white in the spring with a wonderful scent.
Skimmia j. reevesiana is a hermaphrodite with beautiful deep red berries in the autumn and persisting all winter. These neat domed evergreens are a great choice for a small border or for growing in a tub.
Skimmia’s tolerate shade, atmospheric pollution and neglect.
