Description

An unusual evergreen, with blue-green foliage tinted with bronze. Distylium loves the sun but will grow in partial shade so is a useful shrub for the garden. A compact bushy shrub with maroon red petal-less flowers appear in early spring giving some colour in a dark time of the year.

Slow growing, Distylium are reasonably hardy but need shelter from cold winter winds. Beware cold late frosts as it can cause damage to the leaves.
