Japanese skimmia "Magic Marlot"

Small, widely spreading evergreen shrub (H 0,4-0,5 m, W 0,7-0,8 m). Branches upright to widely spreading, densely branched. Leaves ovate (8-12 cm), leathery, smooth, glossy, variegated, dark grey-green, with a narrow, cream white to yellow-white margin and light grey-green spots. Flower buds red to pink, visible already in winter and early spring. Flowers numerous, in dense racemes (up to 8 cm), tiny, simple, cup-shaped, white; petioles and sepals pink-red; a female variety. Flowering period: April-May. Fruits globose (0,8 cm), smooth, fleshy, glossy red. Ripening time: October-November. Grows best in light, fertile, humus-rich, slightly acidic, always moderately moist soils. Needs a sheltered position, protection from cold wind and hot sun.
  • Decidious have woody stems (i. e. tree trunk and branches) and are also called woody plants or trees. Leaves are normally broad, soft and thin.

  • Woody plant, normally branched at the ground level into several side stems, usually lacks of a dominant stem. Tree top can be of different shapes, dense or thin, symetric or uneven. Most shrubs reach a height of 1 to 2 metres, but some can grow much higher (up to 8 m); some can grow into very low or carpet-like forms.

  • Leaves or needles remain on the plant for several consecutive years, usually 2 to 5 years. Our descriptions contain the word evergreen.

  • Plant can in otherwise appropriate environment survive cold down to - 23 °C.

  • These plants grow good in partial shade or shade undergrowth, they can tolerate some moderate sunlight as well.

  • Moist soil usually contain morefine clay parts and less sand, more humus and organic materials, they are somewhat heavier, but not hard; water does not run away quickly but stays among soil particles and is long available to plants. There is no stagnant water, soil is airy enough. Drought occurs rarely on such positions. Plants are given more or less permanent, moderate moisture.

  • Variegated leaves show patterns of different colours, mostly white or yellow pattern on green base. Patterns can appear in forms of stripes, dots, patches, trims, uneven shapes, or colour is splashed over leaf surface; different colour patterns may have sharp borderlines or change softly one to another. Colour intensivity and needle/leaves patterns formation on certain plant may vary greatly according to general plant health and condition, age, maintanance (trimming and care); other factors such as weather, microclimate, sun or shade, presence of plant nutrients and water may also affect greatly on leaf colour. Colouring and patterns on leaves may be affected - changed - by the age of certain leaf or twig and through seasons.
