Product Description

A great choice if you're looking for a plant that looks good all through the year, 'Perosa' will deliver. Compact and easy to grow, it'll always give you something beautiful to see, whatever the month.

Growing in light shade, the evergreen foliage is grey-green with a creamy edge. Red stems bear clusters of tiny maroon buds by the dozen which open to scented creamy-white flowers in the spring and are loved by bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

'Perosa' is a male Skimmia, so it won't produce any berries, but the gorgeous flowers and striking foliage more than make up for that. Slow growing, so little pruning is needed, this will keep itself neat and bushy. Perfect for growing in containers, especially near doors and windows or on the terrace so that you can appreciate the spring fragrance.

Supplied in a 13cm pot for you to plant out, eventually reaching 75cm (3ft) in height and spread. Flowering from April to June.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Best grown in a container in ericaceous soil.

Care Guide

  • Grow Skimmia plants in a dappled or fully shaded position, in moderately fertile, rich, well-drained soil, preferably neutral to acidic.
  • Avoid full sun, as this can cause yellowing of the leaves.
  • Alternatively, and easier, grow in containers, using a soil-based compost such as John Innes No.3 mixed with ericaceous compost.
