Skimmia x confusa 'Kew Green' has a yellowy tinge to its shiny ,ovate green leaves, and flowers also, have a yellowy-green to its overall white clusters. A great evregreen for structure in the garden, in a shady border, or along a path. The colouring of Skimmia x confusa 'Kew Green' lends to a fresh looking planting scheme. Skimmia x confusa 'Kew Green' is a hybrid of S.anquetilia, and S.japonica. Skimmia x confusa 'Kew Green' is a male plant.

Skimmia are rounded evergreen shrubs, of a compact , neat habit that have slightly fragranced leaves when crushed. Tight buds of red in the autumn open into fragrant clusters of white to pink flowers, borne on lime green stems in spring, followed by neat clusters of bright red berries on the female varieties. Male varieties of the dioecious shrub do not produce berries, making it important to get a pair of male and female Skimmia plants to cross pollinate. (S.japonica 'Fragrans' is a male variety, and S.japonica 'Nymans' is a female variety.) Skimmia is the latinized naming of the Japanese name shikimi. Miyami shikimi is the Japanese name for Skimmia japonica.
