Christmas box, Sarcococca confusa, is a dense, winter-flowering evergreen shrub, bearing sweetly scented, pure white blooms, in contrast with dark green leaves. It's extremely tolerant of shade and is therefore perfect for growing in a woodland border or shady corner, where you can enjoy its heady fragrance throughout winter.
Grow Sarcococca confusa in moist but well-drained soil in sun or shade, ideally near a path or in your front garden, where you can appreciate its scent.

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?
Agree about the scent - unbelievable from such small flowers. Mine seeds itself from dropped berries. In a north west facing garden - no sun at all in winter, baked in summer afternoons.
