Answer:Sarcococca hookerana humilis is a dwarf plant, growing only one and one half to two feet tall with a spread of 5 to 8 feet. It is essentially a groundcover, not an upright shrub and while it will tolerate afternoon sunshine in the Pacific Northwest, it will be happiest in a site with morning sun and afternoon shade. If you're looking for a larger, more sun tolerant plant, perhaps a better choice is Sarcococca ruscifolia, which is also commonly called Fragrant Sweetbox (often as two words, Sweet Box). It has a slow growth rate to five feet tally by five feet wide and grows in more sunlight, happily growing anywhere rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas grow. Hope this clears any confusion and helps you choose just the right plants for your landscape.
