Highly sought after, Skimmia O’Berry is a rare, white variety of this classic, autumnal/winter shrub that is covered in pristine berries in autumn. Tolerant of shade, this variety provides impact with its copious round fruit, gleaming against glossy, evergreen foliage. Its compact, slow growing form makes it ideal for a small garden or statement planting in a container.

Skimmia originated in the Himalayas and Asia. Buds of the male plant, resembling tiny red berries, appear in September and remain closed on the plant all winter, in spring they open into cream flowers. The female plant, with less prominent flowers, produces long lasting, bright red berries in the autumn.
