Pic of the Day – Orixa japonica ‘Pearl Frost’

20130708-080735.jpg

Orixa japonica ‘Pearl Frost’ is an unusually hardy member of the citrus family. Dramatically white edged leaves brighten up shady spots and are amazingly scorch resistant in full sun. It grows to about 6′ tall, perhaps a bit higher if very happy and makes a showy deciduous shrub especially with a dark background.
