Skimmia jap. Fragrant Cloud, also known as Skimmia Fragrans, is a compact, evergreen shrub with clusters of fragrant, white flowers in the early part of the year when everything else is still dormant and slightly aromatic, dark green leaves. This award-winning shrub is a particularly fragrant and free-flowering variety. Strongly upright in habit, it works equally well in a shady shrub border or grown as a container plant.
Lightly trim after flowering, if necessary. To improve the moisture retention qualities of the soil add plenty of well-rotted compost when planting.
