One of the most romantic natives around!

Coast Silktassel (Garrya elliptica ‘Evie’) is one of those shrubs that are easy to overlook. Most of the year it is an unassuming evergreen thicket-forming plant. It is a great choice for a hedge or a privacy screen. It makes a steady backdrop for other, more showy plants in the garden.

Until the winter.

Then, step back.

In the winter Coast Silktassel transforms from a simple ‘structure’ shrub to a remarkably romantic shrub with an almost otherworldly beauty. It gives a stunning winter display, covering itself with foot-long creamy white tassels that age to silver or lavender-grey. It is as if it was decorated for the holidays by magical forest creatures! It will become the winter showstopper of your garden, we guarantee it.

This is a hardy native on the west coast from Seattle down to Santa Barbara. It thrives in part shade and, like most good natives, requires little water. It isn’t picky about soil either, performing well in clay, loam or even sand.

If you’ve never seen one of these in person, you’re in for a treat. Order yours today from us!

* Beautiful evergreen in zone 8-10
* California native
* Flowers in the winter
* Thicket-forming hedge
