    It's Sarcococca. There are different varieties though.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    I have Sarcococca confusa in my garden. Opinions differ about its "smell".
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Really, Papi Jo? 😟 We have a large one by the front door and another by the french windows.  We think they smell lovely....

    No wonder nobody comes to see us.🤢
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
  • Thank you Busy Lizzie and PapiJo, can always rely on gardeners world forum members :D
