Sweet Box Hedging
Sarcococca hedging plants and shrubs, also known as sweet box hedging is a sought after plant in terms of small hedging. Over the past few years it has become popular as an alternative to box hedging. It grows evergreen and creates tapered pointed dark green leaves, growing well in many situations. The popularity of this plant is due to the small creamy white flowers it produces in winter, arriving with a sweet scent that is pleasant to the time of year when a lot of the other plants slow down in terms of flowering. The Sarcococca hedge has many uses, with it primarily being used to separate parts of gardens and is being found more and more in formal gardens.
All Sarcococca varieties are wonderful little evergreen shrubs, their delicate sweetly scented flowers make for a welcome distraction from the short Winter days, they make super additions to beds, borders and containers, particularly when planted closer to the house where the scent can be best appreciated.
