Skimmia Shrub Description

Skimmia's long, deep green leaves are beautifully contrasted with its clusters of small, red buds throughout the winter, bringing a splash of colour and life into your garden. In spring, they bloom into masses of pretty, ivory flowers with vibrant pink-red stems.

Wonderfully low-maintenance, Skimmia is best suited to moist but well-drained soil and partial shade, but also grows well in full shade. It's a little sensitive to light, so if possible, keep it out of the full sun, as this can cause the leaves to turn yellow.

Skimmia will need to be watered well when first planted and during the first year of growth, but after this it only needs watering in prolonged periods of dry weather. The plants also benefit from mulch and feed in the spring, to keep them in optimum health.

Skimmia is available to buy all year round. We also have a huge range of plants in our Evergreen section that offer year-round interest.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Skimmia Rubella can be pruned immediately after flowering if required, to trim and shape as desired. However, once established this plant can be left to develop naturally without any pruning and will grow quite happily.

Aside from prunung, Skimmia is a relatively low maintenance plant only requiring feeding and mulch once a year in the spring to keep it looking fantastic!
