Ericas all over town are going mental. Since I was a small child I have always anticipated the winter blooming heathers to put on their show. Some of my fondest garden memories go back to picking off the flowers until I had fists full and throwing them into the air.
And one of my most overlooked blooms must go to this sarcococca. Sure its not the showiest of blooms but it certainly lets its presence be known with its intoxicating aroma.
And really, whats not to love about the emerging flowers of a skimmia japonica! These are one of those foundational type plants. They look good year round and require no care whatsoever.
