Evergreen shrub

Vintage Jade Distylium looks the same 24/7 and through the seasons. Does that make it timeless? We think so.

When you're designing your plantings the subtle dark blue-green leaf color and spreading shape are the elements to consider. Please note that the leaves are a calm blue-green, they are not a vivid powder-blue or silver-blue, say like Artemesia or Cedrus atlantica. They are more green than blue, but they are quite handsomely blue tinged.

The flowers are red, but you may not even notice them. Only consider them in your design strategy if you're really going for the details and want to exclude brief, subtle red tones.

We love our First Editions® plants.

To Make It Thrive
Give it 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 to new growth from spring frosts is called "burning." To prevent frost nipping the new growth, 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.
