Sarcococca ‘Sweet Box Hedge’ 8″ Pot


Sarcococca confusa

Sweet Box is a bushy evergreen with glossy leaves that is perfect for medium to low hedges but not as well known and used as it should be. During Winter, fine and delicate, sweetly scented, creamy flowers appear followed by shiny black berries. Sweet Box has shiny, deep green, foliage and this variety usually only grows to a maximum height of around 4ft. Unless you want a tightly clipped formal hedge or border, it needs very little trimming.

Sweet Box likes a position of both full sunlight and part shade in a sheltered location. If your hedge travels under a shady spot, try Sweet Box – it is quite happy in shade! It should be ideally planted in moist, well draining soil.
