Skimmia subsp. reevesiana

Native to the Himalayas and much of East Asia the Skimmias are wonderfully adaptable plants that will happily grow in virtually all locations including seaside industrial and heavy shade thus bringing colour to the dullest of corners! Skimmia japonica subsp. Reevsiana, to give it it's full name, is a lovely, evergreen, dwarf form that rarely grows to a metre in height. The leaves are dark green tapered and occasionally with a pale margin. Unlike many Skimmia, S. reevsiana is hermaphrodite so a male plant is not required to produce berries. Short terminal panicles of flowers form in winter ready to open to fragrant white flowers in May. The flowers are followed in autumn by very attractive, obovoid bright red berries that are so long lasting they are often still present when the flowers appear again in spring. Easy to grow in most soils and locations. Makes an excellent plant for the patio or where space is limited. When growing in a pot or other container use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. We recommend the addition of a 12 month controlled release fertiliser annually in spring to ensure sufficent nutrient.
