Small evergreen shrub, to 12-14” and slowly spreading, our plants from the Platt garden where its winter flowers heavily scent the air. Tiny white flowers; wonderfully spicy aroma. A must have for the shady garden with a little summer water. Extremely choice. Frost hardy in USDA zone 6.

A neat, compact, evergreen shrub that grows 1-2' high and is great for a ground cover or underplanting. It will spread via underground runners to 8' or more. It bears fragrant white flowers and glossy black fruit. One of the best evergreens for dry and shaded areas of the garden.

The very early small, creamy flowers are hidden but wonderfully fragrant on this low-growing spreader with dark-green, lustrous leaves. PSh-Shade/Med
