Skimmia are a genus of evergreen plants native to Japan, China and Southeast Asia. They have been cultivated as garden plants for many years and in the UK produce panicles of tight buds in the winter which are often seen as more decorative than the flowers they open up to in early spring. These buds are used in floristry particularly winter displays. Fertilised female plants will produce red berries after flowering.
