Japanese Skimmia (Male)
Skimmia japonica (Male)
Although often prized as a pollenizer, this handsome, densely branched, naturally dome-shaped, mounded shrub is a true showman. Glossy, rich green, aromatic foliage backs large, full clusters of tiny but showy, deep reddish pink buds that open to very fragrant, creamy white, star-shaped flowers in the spring. An excellent landscape accent. Evergreen.
