Skimmia Japonica is otherwise known as a Japanese Skimmia. This a dense, mounded, evergreen shrub. In mid Spring, large clusters of fragrant star shaped, creamy white and pink appear of the tips of the branches. Most skimmia varieties are either male or female, so you need to grow two different varieties, to ensure the females produce their bright red berries. There are some hermaphrodite, self-fertile varieties, so only 1 plant is needed for fruit to develop, although even these will produce more fruit if a male is grown close by. Bright red berries will grow later in the Summer months if this is done. Perfect for growing in patio containers.
