Skimmia japonica 'White Maria' is a white-flowering Skimmia that retains its cream/white flower color throughout the winter period and hardly declines in color. The Skimmia 'White Maria' therefore stands out on its flowering and growth habit, which is different from other white flower species. The product is built up from three cuttings put in end-pot and then grown for a year before flower set. Skimmia jap. 'White Maria' is suitable for wholesalers, garden centers and van-sales companies and is available for trade from September 10. The plant is protected by plant breeders' legislation and has been submitted by Boomkwekerij Dennis van Eijk from Boskoop.
