The Christmas box is a delightful evergreen shrub. Reaching only a metre tall and a metre wide. These compact plants are best grown near a path, in a container or by the front door where their beautiful scent can be enjoyed. The sweet scented flowers appear from December onwards and contrast well with the dark green glossy foliage.
