I use to think this plant was spanish Box (Buxux balerica) I now know it is Sarcococca Confusa or Sweet Box. It is a slow grower and this one is at least three years old. It is evergreen and when it flowers in mmid-winter the scent is very pleasant and strong. It scents up an area much greater than its size suggests. Later the berries form in the autumn and gives added interests, and as it is evergreen this plant gives year round interest in the garden.
