☘ Skimmia is a member of the same family as Citrus Trees. The family resemblance is clear from the leaves, if you crush them, they release a Citrus Fragrance.
☘ If you like light colors, opt for Skimmia in the spring. At that time the berries are still green with hints of yellow. If you favour the darker shades then autumn’s warm, claret color Skimmia is highly recommended.
☘ Unlike many other Berry-bearing plants, birds and small garden mammals are not particularly fond of Skimmia’s Berries. So they stay on the plant for a nice long time.
