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. Emerald Heights is the choice for dense property line screening as its size can reach 8 feet if left untrimmed.
