Skimmia japonica Gold Series® Exstase® ('Exstbolwi'PBR) EU 42915



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. These Skimmia are easier to grow than similar varieties. The Gold Series® is very suitable for cut flowers but also for garden planting, for mass planting or for in a pot on the terrace. These evergreen shrubs form a spherical plant of about 1.00 x 1.00m after 10 years. Plant them in a (peat) soil with a low pH in the semi-shade to shade. Pruning is not necessary. Hardy up to -15 ºC.
Get excited with Skimmia Gold Series® Exstase®! Exstase® has large, purple-red flower buds and dark green, slightly wavy leaves. The growth is upright with long branches. Exstase® has stronger roots than Rubella and Rubinetta, especially with warm conditions.
