Quick Overview:

Cinnamon Girl Distylium is a stalwart option to traditional boxwoods and other evergreen hedges, especially in the south where other hedge shrubs are susceptible to bugs and diseases in the heat and humidity. This is the most cold-hardy of all the distylium shrubs on the market.The new leaves emerge plum-purple and turn blue-green as they mature. It handles pruning well and makes a great backdrop in any garden.

Description

Distyliums are a Southern gardener’s dream plant because they are evergreen, compact, disease and insect resistant, and are heat and drought tolerant. Distylium hybrids will also grow in wet soils.  Light tip pruning in June spurs new growth and a denser growth habit.  A late winter tip pruning may also be done after the plant has bloomed, but the best advice is minimal attention. They will grow from light shade to full sun. When planted in shaded areas, Distyliums will have a looser shape.
