Spring Frost  Distylium
Dystilium hybrid  'Spring Frost'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Distylium variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

We're extremely excited about the new Distyliums and the new forms, texture and colors they provide in landscape design. Every once in a while, maybe once or twice in a decade, a new plant comes along that has everything we look for in a hardy and reliable evergreen flowering shrub. Very adaptable, Distyliums grow well in sun or part shade and will tolerate dry or wet soils when established, which can't be said about many shrubs. Heat and humidity don't phase the plants. We've seen no problems with insects and disease and deer turn their nose up to it. In landscape design, Distyliums are a great alternative for boxwood, laurels, holly and juniper in sunny to partially shaded home foundation plantings, landscape borders, and as a soil stabilizer on embankments and slopes.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide, Spring Frost Distylium is an ideal selection as an accent, in groupings, or in staggered or straight rows as a hedge in home foundation plantings and landscape borders. It is also very useful in mass plantings to dress up embankments, hillsides and slopes and where it's roots do an excellent job stabilizing soil for erosion control. A fine addition to white theme gardens.
 
Spacing Suggestions:  3 to 3.5 feet for solid hedges;  8 feet or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Exceptionally adaptable, Spring Frost Distylium is very easy to grow in most any moist to moderately drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. It tolerates more moisture than many other evergreen shrubs and is also tolerant of dry soil conditions when established. We have Distyliums growing in sites that receive 4 hours and up to 8 hours of direct sunlight per day and plants do equally well. That said, the plants in more sun might be a little more dense. Maintenance is minimal unless you want a more formal shape, which will require some pruning.
