Emerald Heights® Evergreen Distylium

Distylium 'PIIDIST-I' PP #24,410

A dense and compact evergreen shrub with excellent resistance to pests and disease. Cascading, glossy green foliage produces an interesting layered effect. Red-maroon flowers bloom late winter into early spring. Highly adaptable, and an ideal alternative to more ordinary hollies and laurels for borders, hedges, and mass plantings.
