One of the best shade tolerant shrubs for planting under trees and in similar situations. Sarcococca species originate in China and the Himalayas and are related to the common box, buxus. They are slow-growing plants that spread by suckering shoots gradually forming low-growing mounds of evergreen foliage. The dark green leaves are slightly rippled and the small insignificant flowers produce a rich scent. They also grow well in shade but will also grow in full sun if the roots are kept consistently moist.

Very tough plant.
The flowers, even if you have only a handful, literally flood the surrounding area with a scent so delicious and rich that you'll be amazed at the intensity.
Blue black berries follow.
Beautiful near a doorway or window, so that when you pass by in Winter, you can appreciate the perfume.
Mine is in full shade - don't know how well this does in part shade/sun - anyone have any experiences as to whether it flowers more/less or has more/less berries?
