Distylium 'Cinnamon Girl'

Distylium 'Cinnamon Girl'
Distylium 'Cinnamon Girl'
Purple-tinged new growth

Family hamamelidaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z7-10)
Flowers red
Size 2-3'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Small-leaved evergreen shrub, often used as a substitute for boxwood in hot climates. Our specimen has a dinstinctly different look from plain old boxwoods though, perhaps because its new growth comes in purplish, turning to blue-green when mature. Its red flowers are seldom mentioned, so I don't figure they are showy – which makes sense, since this plant is in the witchhazel family, whose members often don't have large flowers. 'Cinnamon Girl' is hardier than most distylums, and should have no problem surviving Houston winters.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: right fence border
