Regular price $28.00 Sale

Akebono Distylium. This Distylium is not as low and spreading as D. myricoides, but grows in a more vase shape, upright/spreading form. The flowers are almost identical as Distylium myricoides, small, scarlet in the axils of the leaves in February. But what sets this plant apart is its incredible variegation of splotched creams and yellows, and it is also a very stable selection. It will tolerate full sun to fairly dense shade, but in shade the plant will not be nearly so dense. This can be a nice focal point in your garden and a must for every variegated plant collector.
