Skimmia - Magic Marlot

Saw this lovely Skimmia on Meadowlands pics...

So handy to have details of plants before you make your choice....so different to the norm with it's lovely Foliage which will compliment the blooms...

Very attractive Crissue. Nicer than the plain leaf one I think.

Yes, I agree with Frybo. I love this little Skimmia. I've tried, twice, but they don't like it here...too cold and wet all winter.

I agree too Frybo & Karen...much nicer than the plain one, tho I like the deep red flowers on the original...Shame it's too cold for one for your garden Karen...we'll see how this fares here...

Hi...I...how you doing...I'll be interested to see how nice the flowers are when they open...but I really like it for it's foliage too...
