Plant Finder: about Skimmia japonica


Skimmia japonica. This is a dense evergreen shrub, with aromatic foliage with a fine texture and fragrance. The flowers are tiny and white, and will appear in early spring to late spring, and are followed by bright red, decorative berries. They will grow to a height and spread of about 5ft. They prefer a partially shaded setting with moist soil.


Skimmias are shade-lovers and grow very well with rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. They need a moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil.

Interest and use

    Unusual varieties of hostas. I have about 500 different varieties and am looking for more. Can offer about 1/3rd of these to swap (hosta for hosta), most of which are listed.
    Also named varieties of Agapanthus (I have 4 varieties to swap)
    Will sell plants as well if requested although not set up to post (other than for hostas sent bare-rooted) so buyer will need to collect.
