Sweet box is a very uniform selection from Canada which grows tall enough to make an excellent shade replacement for Skimmia, since it is much more tolerant of varied conditions. The small white fragrant flowers appear in spring above the shiny dark green evergreen foliage. A fairly vigorous spreading ground cover for dry shade.
