will thrive in shady conditions with moist, well drained soil
and are also tolerant of drought.
They are exceptionally easy to care for requiring
little maintenance, propagation can occur from seed sown into
a pot or container in autumn and then placed in a cold frame.
Semi ripe cuttings can then be taken in late summer. Skimmia
are very hardy but to ensure they maintain their vigour over
the winter a light mulching for protection may be needed and
if pruning is deemed necessary it should be undertaken after
flowering has ceased.
these plants are designed to stay small and compact they are
perfect for use in pots and containers to brighten up a patio
area or for use in borders for maximum impact throughout the
year. However you choose to site these plants you will be
captivated and enthralled by their vitality.
