Sarcococca confusa, commonly known as Sweet Box or Christmas Box, is a versatile and evergreen shrub valued for its glossy foliage, fragrant flowers, and adaptability to various garden conditions. This slow-growing, shade-tolerant shrub is cherished for its ability to provide year-round interest and a delightful fragrance.

The glossy, dark green leaves of Sarcococca confusa create a dense and attractive backdrop in the garden. The leaves are lance-shaped and arranged alternately along the arching branches, adding a touch of elegance to the plant's overall appearance. One of the most remarkable features of this shrub is its small, creamy-white flowers that appear in late winter to early spring. Despite their modest size, the flowers emit a powerful and sweet fragrance, making them particularly valuable during the colder months.
