sarcoccoca box caterpillar

berardeberarde Posts: 135
Good morning to all. I am thinking of a sarcoccoca, but see it is in the buxus family, so I am wondering if it is affected (blighted) by the box caterpillar? I've searched rhs etc but there is no mention of it being the case. does anybody know differently. Thank you, such a helpful site here and how quickly helpful replies come through

    Good morning to you, too.

    I have never seen any sort of blight on any of my sarcococca plants and I have different types. I have never seen a caterpillar on any of them either.

    For what it’s worth, this is on the jparkers website.
