Cinnamon Girl™ Distylium: A Best Plant of 2016

Every year, major publications come out with their "Best of" new plants list. This year, the folks at Fine Gardening were no exception, and included First Editions® Cinnamon Girl™ Distylium as one of their Best New Shrubs for 2016. They call it "a disease-free alternative to boxwood." That's one great attribute of this plant; for those of you that deal with boxwood blight and other insect and disease issues, Distylium is a great disease-resistant alternative. Cinnamon Girl™ is also unique in that it has higher cold tolerance than the species. This variety has plum-purple new grown and then turns blue-green as the leaves mature.
