Pearly Twirly™ Helwingia
Helwingia chinensis 'Djhs073'
|Description||An intriguing upright evergreen shrub with finer texture than others of its species. Small white flowers sit like little bubbles along the midrib of the willowy leaves, appearing in spring, and occasionally again in fall. A charming accent for a shaded entry or woodland garden. Plant in groups for a textural backdrop or screen. A Monrovia exclusive.|
|Watering||Keep soil evenly moist.|
|Mature Size||Upright, pyramidal habit; reaches 5 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide.|
|Special Features||Easy Care|
|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Care||Thrives in humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Best in bright or dappled shade; protect from harsh direct sun and drying winds. Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established maintain evenly moist soil. Feed with a slow-release fertilizer in spring.|
|Lore||All species of Helwingia are dioecious, meaning if both male and female plants are grown in proximity to each other, small purple drupes (fruit) may be produced, and ripen atop the leaf blades in early autumn.|
