  1. Stunning plant, but what is it?

    Lovely winter shrub. I wonder if I can find a suitable spot somewhere. Thank you for the inspiration.

    We have a big shrub right on the roadfront area of the garden. It is underplanted with a lot of snowdrops and people passing along the road regularly comment that the snowdrops have a fantastic fragrance!

    • Cathy says:

      It is hard to tell where the fragrance is coming from sometimes – the first time I came across it was a large bank of it in a public park in our local town, and you must have been able to smell it perhaps as much as 30 metres away…it took me a long time to work out where the fragrance was coming from

  4. Cathy says:

    You should see my poor s. confusa – four years old and about the size of my thumb, now with 2 shoots though!! I might transplant in March to the front of the house where it’s not so hot in summer. But I’m frightened it will die (as many things do when I transplant!)

    • Cathy says:

      Mine, whch may also be S Confusa, took time to get established, and thrived when it was moved to a different location. Taking care to get all the roots you should be fine moving yours, especially if it is as tiny as you say!!

      • Cathy says:

        It wasn’t tiny when it was planted, which is why I’m nervous. Just glad to see it alive, although I think I’ll take the risk later on!

  5. Oh, I wish I could scratch and sniff. I’ll have to imagine the scent…

  6. This flower-filled Sarcococca must have a divine fragrance and should spread all around. It is wonderful, a joy for winter, I love it. Cathy enjoys it. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.
