Evergreen shrub

Cinnamon Girl is considered the most cold hardy Distylium to zone 7a.

It also has the smallest, darkest blue-green leaves and the most colorful new growth - it's plum purple and very showy. 

For these reasons, it's my absolute favorite Distylium.

It's as heat tolerant, drought tolerant, and tough as any other Distylium kid on the block.

To Make It Thrive
Grow distylliums in a warm, mild climate, but otherwise it's so well-adjusted that as long as you don't drive over it, it will be fine.

It's March and the new growth is damaged, what happened?
Damage from early spring frosts, after the foliage started growing, is called "burning." It's avoidable by staying in Zones 7 and warmer (south). To prevent frost nipping the new growth that comes out early in warm spells during spring, folks throw old sheets, blankets, or burlap over their distyliums when they notice new growth and the thermometer dropping below 32 degrees. Likely only the new growth will get nipped and the plant will grow back just fine and you'll never even notice something happened.
