Fragrant Mountain Sweet Box

Freshen up your shady spaces with this easy-to-grow shrub. Fragrant Mountain has a polished, clean-looking appearance that is outstanding in the springtime landscape. Deep evergreen foliage covers a neat compact form that grows to 5' tall and 6' wide. Fragrant flowers of pure white appear in spring followed by blue-black fruit later in the year. Makes a wonderful ground cover, too, as it grows readily in shadowed areas of the property. Create a lush, three-season look near foundations, at the edge of a woodland space or in north-facing gardens. Tolerates dry shade and urban conditions well. Deer tend to avoid. 4" pot. Sarcocca hookeriana var humilis 'Fragrant Mountain'

Shipping Note:

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or yours may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until full dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.

In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to send your order.

For trees and other oversize items, we do not ship to PO boxes and it will be delivered via FedEx Home delivery.
