Quick Overview:

‘Fragrant Valley’ Sarcococca is a dense, well branched shrub that spreads faster than the species. Small white, very fragrant flowers appear in early spring. The glossy deep green foliage is more narrow than the species. It spreads slowly by suckering. Tiny, apetulous, unisexual, tubular, fragrant, white flowers (1/2" long) bloom in the leaf axils in March-April. Female flowers give way to globose, shiny, black fruits (drupes to 1/3" wide). Native to western Himalayas and China.
