Incredible perfume, hardy evergreen leaves and ease of care are all characteristics of Sarcococca sweetbox shrubs. Also known as Christmas box plants, these shrubs are related to standard boxwood plants but offer glossier leaves and unmatched scent in late winter. Growing sweetbox shrubs is effortless and they can be elegant little standards, gently sweeping low hedges and provide some winter interest in the dormant perennial garden.

Plants grow up to 5 feet (1.5 m.) in height but can be kept sheared back for more compact foliage. Leaves are lance shaped, up to 2 inches (5 cm.) long and evergreen. The tiny white flowers are often followed by small round black or red fruits.
