Linebacker Distylium

Distylium 'PIIDIST-IV' PP25,984

Linebacker Distylium is an upright evergreen that takes on the shape of a white oak whiskey barrel in youth and matures into an excellent screening or hedge plant. Reddish new growth matures to lustrous dark green and does not thin out in the center of the plant. With no pests or diseases to trouble it, Linebacker is becoming a popular replacement for cherry laurel for screening and hedges.
