    Sarcococca orientalis not had this long (spring 2021), small flowers, but lovely scent.

    Sarcococca wallichi, larger flowers, but less scented than orientalis.

    I have another two species S confusa and S hookeriana that are some weeks off flowering.

                            True Pete, it is always at its best Autumn/Winter. T'other Half has that job but since it has been wet you can see they litter the patio. :whistle:

                            I am sure T'other Half would let you take over. :biggrin:
