Cinnamon Girl™ Distylium – 3 gallon container


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.

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.
