A splendid Chinese shrub with fairly narrow, lance-shaped dark green leaves and masses of sweetly scented white flowers in winter. Fairly slow growing with us, Sarcococca ruscifolia var. chinensis 'Dragon Gate' will grow to be a compact, small shrub in time.

Sarcococca ruscifolia var. chinensis 'Dragon Gate' is suitable in size for even the smallest of gardens and a particularly good choice of shrub for an area near a door where the flowers fragrance can be appreciated, it will also grow well in a large container or pot (if the pot is protected through the winter).
