Skimmia is one of those plants that usually need both a male and female plant to produce red berries on female shrubs. Reeves skimmia is self-pollinating with masses of pinkish white blooms in the spring that turn into red berries from fall and into the winter. This variety forms a rounded shrub about two feet tall and two to three feet wide at maturity, adding year-round interest and color to shady gardens. Slow to reach its maximum size, Reeves skimmia is a great choice for container planters, shady borders, or mass plantings. Its leaves will scorch if placed in too sunny a location, but is otherwise considered low maintenance. Please note that this variety is smaller than Skimmia japonica, which can reach four feet in height. Pet owners may wish to keep skimmia out of the reach of chewing pets as the whole plant can cause digestive distress if ingested.
