Sarcococca species are Chinese and Himalayan evergreen shrubs, related to the common box, buxus. Most are fairly small, slow-growing plants, broader than they are tall, and very shade-tolerant although they also grow well in full sun if the roots are kept consistently moist. S. hookeriana is a suckering shrub, winter-flowering with a powerful fragrance which compensates for the small size of the blooms. S. hookerianavar. digyna is a more shapely shrub than the species, with slim dense foliage, and very hardy in exposed positions. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Hi, I purchased a couple of these beauties 2 weeks ago but unfortunately haven't been able to pot them out yet (I have a terrace, so am limited to container gardening) although I intend to do so this weekend.. problem is they seem to have lost their fragrance completely and their flowers look a little sad... I make sure to water them andcan see new green shoots growing, but what happened to their fragrance? Please help!
