Full description and specifications

Skimmia japonica 'Illusion' is an ornamental garden plant, valued for its evergreen leaves and fragrant flowers. It is a small to medium shrub, with a compact growth, reaching a height of approximately 1-1.5 meters.

The leaves are lanceolate, light green, slightly glossy, and remain on the plant all year. The flowers appear in the autumn-winter-spring seasons. They emit a pleasant fragrance and attract bees.

Skimmia japonica 'Illusion' can vary depending on environmental conditions and care, but in general, the flowers can last a few weeks to a month. They are quite resistant and hold well both on the plant and in bouquets, if they are cut.

The plant prefers a well-drained, slightly acidic soil and adapts well to semi-shade conditions. It is a good choice for small gardens or for use as a background plant in mixed borders. It is also quite resistant to diseases and pests, making it a low-maintenance option for busy or novice gardeners.

Pruning is not necessary. Resistant in the garden up to -15 ºC.

Height with pots included: approx. 30-40 cm
