Can I replace a plant that has black root rot with a DISTYLIUM?

Great question!

I’m not certain I would risk planting distylium in a spot where you’ve had problems with black root rot though distylium isn’t listed by extension agencies as a host plant. If you are wanting to give it a try, take the time to change out your soil and add amendments to the heavy clay to improve the drainage. To be on the safe side, contact your local extension agent for his/her recommendation.

Thanks for writing!
