Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Distylium is very easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Distylium is a good alternative for boxwood, cherry laurel, holly and juniper in foundation plantings or anywhere you want low maintenance evergreen shrubs.

SWING LOW™ DISTYLIUM

Distylium x 'PIIDIST-VI'
PP29779 Plant propagation prohibited

Buy Swing Low™ Distylium online. Swing Low™ is a perfect evergreen for grouping and massing. After five years in trials, it remains more compact and prostrate than Cinnamon Girl™ with dainty blue-green leaves densely arranged on horizontal branches. Like all First Editions® Distylium, Swing Low™ is an adaptable plant growing well in dry soil, wet soil, seasonally flooded areas and slopes. It's also heat tolerant. We selected this plant in summer 2016 after the hottest Georgia summer on record. It adapts well to pruning when needed, and is disease and insect resistant.
