Skimmia japonica ‘Illusion’ (Gold Series) is a pretty Japanese skimmia.
This flowering evergreen shrub has deep green leaves and bears lots of cream and green flower panicles in spring and early summer from bronze coloured buds.
It’s an acid-loving plant that grows well in garden beds, borders or pots and prefers ericaceous soil.
We recommend feeding skimmia with either Azalea, Camellia & Rhododendron Continuous Release Plant Food or Sequestered Iron. And we think skimmia look lovely when planted with heathers or winter pansies. These plants will all thrive together in ericaceous soil, so you can enjoy a lovely display.
