Skimmia japonica 'Magic Marlot'



14th December 2008


I quite like the Skimmia. They make good compact evergreen shrubs, and apart from a slightly sinister 'Cinderella-poisoning' look to their red berries, they are without the ability to offend. It should be acknowledged that they are also without the ability to enchant. This is the first variegated form I have seen, and this is little more than a rooted cutting, so I can't yet tell if it will be worth the space it occupies but I am prepared to give it a chance.
