Purple Stem Sweet Box, Wonderfully fragrant winter bloomer in December and January whose small white flowers with pink calyces perfume a disproportionate area relative to their size. Narrow alternate evergreen leaves on a plant up to 30" tall but usually shorter. This small evergreen is the same plant offered as var. digyna which has opposite leaves or as var. humilis which is a synonym of var. digyna but the taxonomy shifts like the wind.
