Distylium 'Cinnamon Girl™' PP#027631

The Cinnamon Girl™ Distylium main distinction is the foliage shape, coloration, and texture; being much smaller, more narrow, giving an overall finer texture to the entire shrub. New foliage has a plum-purple color and as the leaves mature, fade into a blue-green hue. This evergreen reaches a mature height of 2 to 3 feet and a mature width of 3 to 4 feet, and is considered the most cold hardy distylium to date. For the winter seasonal interest, Cinnamon Girl™ displays small reddish-maroon flowers that last for several weeks. An ideal shrub for use where a low plant is needed for home foundation, mass planting on slopes and embankments for erosion control, ground cover, low hedge, or as a border along paths.

The Distylium family of shrubs are relatively new to the market.  They have become go to foundation plantings used to replace several problematic shrubs.  When I'm talking to my customers, I tell them Distylium can handle shade, sun, dry, wet, good and bad soil.
