Swing Low™ Distylium
Spreading Evergreen is Super Easy to Grow
Swing Low Distylium (Distylium ‘PIIDIST-VI’ PPAF) is a very handsome broadleaved evergreen for southern states. There has been a lot of breeding done by Dr. Dirr, and this is the 5th and newest addition to the First Editions Collection. New plants are released for a reason, and this selection has many.
Swing Low differs from all the other selections in that it has smaller, and more delicate foliage. Shiny and dark green leaves are fine textured and beautiful. The green leaves have a bluish cast and they are very densely arranged all along the stems so the plants offer a classic look.
The spreading form of Swing Low make it the perfect plant to use in mass. The perfect ground cover with a very elegant look that just stands beautifully on its own. How about using Swing Low as a low edging plant to showcase your beautiful annual or perennial gardens? What a perfect groundcover in front of your rose garden. Looking for a low growing foundation plant? Swing Low quietly adds structure to the garden offering support year round.
Swing Low is a no brainer when it comes to care and maintenance – just so easy to grow! It is an evergreen, and is resistant to insect and disease problems. Swing Low is wildly heat tolerant, and is not fussy about soils able to withstand both wet or dry locations. It can easily tolerate soils that are occasionally saturated. Grows best in full sun or partial shade.
Swing Low Distylium only gets 2 to 3 feet tall and can spread about 4 feet. Swing Low responds well to pruning if you want to keep it smaller.
