Distylium 'PIIDIST-IV' PP25,984

 

Linebacker™ Distylium is one of the newest picks for foundation planting.  She is from the witch hazel plant family, and shows off fuzzy red blooms in the winter.  New growth unfolds in the beautiful reddish copper color, then as the plant matures the color softens to a deep waxy green later in the season.

Joseph's Take

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. Linebacker has redish new growth, it grows very fast and is very disease resistant.
