Skimmia is our October 'Plant of the Month'. A fantastically hard-working and versatile shrub, perfect for autumn-winter planting.
Who else loves Skimmia? How do you use it in your garden?
Monday's shrub is one of our favourites. Skimmia japonica reevesiana is a compact evergreen with delightfully fragrant leaves.
At this time of year, this first-rate plant is covered in fantastic showy red berries.
Not familiar with skimmia but it looks lovely!
Is it sour or acidic in taste?
..fantastic plants ...as a single specimen or as an informal evergreen hedge
@gjones as @ukjohnny says it is a fantastic plant for multiple garden uses!
@ankur1406 the berries are purely ornamental and could cause a little discomfort if eaten - so definitely don't try one
