Skimmia japonica 'Rubella' is one of the most popular evergreens in Britain, with handsome dark green foliage and showy clusters of deep red buds from autumn through winter, opening to sweetly scented white flowers in spring. A male variety ensuring the production of red berries on female varieties planted nearby. Brightens borders over many months and provides ideal material for winter flower arrangements.

A neat, compact shrub, growing around 75cm (30in) high and wide, thriving in moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil, in full or dappled shade, sheltered from cold winds. Can also be grown successfully in containers.
