Skimmia japonica ‘Rubella’ is a compact skimmia, with reddish, deep green leaves. Dark red flower buds form in autumn and throughout winter until the flowers open in spring. It’s ideal for growing in an autumn or winter container display or using to fill gaps in the border. This is such a boost of colour and interest for the garden or pot for the Winter months.
For best results grow Skimmia japonica ‘Rubella’ in moist but well-drained soil in partial to full shade. Trim plants after flowering and mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost.
