Let’s be honest. First Editions® Cinnamon Girl® Distylium isn’t a sexy plant. Even with a hot name like Cinnamon Girl, this is really just a hardworking hedge shrub. Even the Latin name – (Distylium ‘PIIDIST-V’ PP 27,631) – is pretty dull.

It is a stalwart option to traditional boxwoods and other evergreen hedges, especially in the south where other hedge shrubs are susceptible to bugs and diseases in the heat and humidity. This is the most cold-hardy of all the distylium shrubs on the market, withstanding winter temps that make other distyliums shudder.

The new leaves emerge plum-purple and turn blue-green as they mature. It handles pruning well and makes a great backdrop in any garden. Cinnamon Girl Distylium isn’t the diva in the garden. She’s not the eye-catching centerpiece or the show-stopping specimen plant. She is dependable. She is sturdy. She is reliably green and very easy to care for.

Wait a minute.

Low maintenance. Always ready for action. There when you need her. Fits into any place and makes everything around her look better.
