What’s that smell? That delicious vanilla fragrance belongs to Sarcococca confusa ‘Sweet Box’.
From the Buxaceae family, Sarcococca confusa is a compact bushy evergreen shrub with dense dark green foliage. This terrific shrub bears delicate ivory-white flowers in late winter to early spring, followed by glossy red, purple or black berries which may carry on into the following winter.
