|'Nymans' may be the best fruiting cultivar, bearing fairly large red fruits, but a male is required for fruit set. Known for its lovely evergreen foliage, fragrant flowers and attractive fruits. Growth habit is rounded to erect or creeping. Leaves are oval to inversely lance shaped, dark green, to 4 inches long. White flowers to 1/4 inch across are held in dense panicles to 3 inches long. On female plants flowers are followed by small, round, red fruit. Skimmias tolerate atmospheric pollution and shade, prefering cool, moist soil.
