This is new to me ,is it really called Christmas Box , it's very pretty and being perfumed is a bonus , how tall does it grow Maureen ? I can see it has black berries ,do the birds like those ? ....

It is really pretty and I have recently searched for it in the garden centre because I love scented plants. However for some strange reason I did not like the scent and found it rather overpowering - I wonder if I am alone on this one?

Wildrose it is very overpowering, it is at the back of our garden, because I would find it too much nearer the house, but it does make an attractive evergreen which can be clipped to shape if need be.....

You're right, it is a very attractive looking plant and therefore I COULD still have it but not too close to any pathways.
Thanks.
