Skimmia japonica starting to flourish....I hope. (Skimmia japonica (Skimmia))

This potted skimmia has started to perk up this year. It has struggled for the past few years. I was thinking of planting it in the garden, but, I’ve decided to hold off and see how it goes.

I bought a couple of these last winter, sold as Christmas decoration, and potted them on. They have scented out the greenhouse for the last few weeks, so were a real bargain. I think, like you, I will keep them in pots. Yours looks good with the sempervivums. Clever idea.

Thanks Ange, I’ve another fine in a pot in a shadier area. The latter hasn’t flowered, but is very lush.
I do agree, you got a great bargain at Christmas with two of them.
I added the sempervivums as I had a few ‘spare’ and thought I’d try this ‘look’ and see how it goes...seems to be going fairly well!
Thanks again, Ange.

Mine seem to better in pots Kate as they wouldn't like my clay soil!
