Where are my snowdrops?

Tough shrub for shady, windy spot

I've got skimmia in a shady, cold and quite exposed spot- it does very well, with lovely flowers and berries.

My new addition sarcococca is also settling in well to the same north side of my small garden- I'm aware it may not have as many flowers and berries aif one in a less shady spot though.
