Joseph's Take

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.
