This beautiful Skimmia Gold Series® offers diversity in colour and leaf shape. The starting point for the breeding was the colour of the flower buds. Other varieties have a beautiful colour flower bud that often quickly turns to bronze. The flower buds of Skimmia Gold Series® vary in colour and retain their colour much longer. The Gold Series® Skimmia also have a strong rooting system and they are less sensitive to red spider and spider mite. The Gold Series® gives white flowers in April-May.
