Description

Out with the old! In with the new! The Blue Cascade® Distylium is an exciting, new, broad-leaf evergreen that flowers throughout winter. This lovely blue-green shrub is a great substitute for other evergreens that tend to be prickly, lack color, or are just simply overused in the landscape.

Beautiful blue-green foliage lasts all year. Delicate, deep ruby red flowers coat the branches adding rich color in January through March. In spring a brilliant bronze-red hue dances over the matte leaves. The dense, layered habit of the Blue Cascade® Distylium adds depth, lavish color, and unique texture to your landscape!

The Blue Cascade Distylium is extremely versatile in the landscape. At a mature height and spread of 3-4 feet you are sure to have the right spot for this hardy shrub! It is a perfect replacement for some of the old standards especially in foundation plantings, hedges and borders. Try distylium in group or mass plantings for an exciting, new look! The Blue Cascade is unique and showy making it an ideal specimen or focal shrub in a garden or mixed bed. Distylium is flawless in containers!

Plant your Blue Cascade® Distylium in full sun to part shade. This evergreen shrub is adaptable to different soils, but performs best in a moist, well-draining soil. Plant in zones 6b to 9 for best results. Cooler zones can grow as a container or patio plant. There is no need for pruning, but this shrub tolerates heavy pruning if you prefer a manicured look. This Distylium drought and deer tolerant once established and pest and disease resistant. The Blue Cascade® Distylium is effortless to maintain!
