Pic of the Day – Distylium ‘Spring Frost’

Distylium Spring Frost 3.30 (1)

This new evergreen shrub is a compact grower with pure white new growth which turns green as the summer progresses.  The bright pink stems add an additional touch of color.  Distylium is a  tough garden performer, tolerating sun or shade and considerable drought once established.  Look for this stellar new introduction in the next year or two at better garden centers.
