Thank you for a great article. I have always loved the fragrance of my S confusa in winter. It is almost impossible to find any of the species for sale in nurseries here in the northeast, such a shame! I hope your piece will spark some interest and demand out here.

S. h. var. humilis is a smaller version--12-24" according to seller. I don't have room for the taller variety but this one might fit.

I have one that is probably 20 years old (transplanted from Oregon to Washington at about 7 years old). It is easily 6' tall and 10' wide. It gets some morning sun and is at the edge of my field. I can step out of my home around Valentine's Day and if the breeze is right, smell it although it is 200-300' feet away. The most glorious evergreen shrub even through Artic Blasts! I use the greens as filler for my cut flower bouquets I take to our local market in the winter.
