Skimmia japonica 'Rubella' is a beautiful and compact evergreen shrub. Red margined, leathery, dark-green leaves are evergreen and provide all-year round interest. Striking, dark-red buds are produced in Autumn, lasting right through the Winter and are as much a feature of this Skimmia as the flowers are. Light pink, small fragrant blooms open in Spring and last numerous weeks.
A truly spectacular plant, it comes as no surprise that it has been given the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the RHS, indicating that it's favoured as one of the very best evergreen shrubs available. The perfect plant for filling small gaps in the border or looks equally stunning planted in containers as a feature in their own right. Just be sure you are able to appreciate the sweet fragrance this plant produces.
