First Editions® Swing Low® Distylium

Distylium ‘PIIDIST VI’

Introduced by Bailey Nurseries Inc.
Selected by Dr. Michael Dirr, Plant Introductions Inc., Watkinsville, Georgia

Swing Low® Distylium is a perfect evergreen groundcover. It was selected for its low growing, prostrate habit which is unique among the Distylium cultivars on the market. Its blue-green leaves are densely arranged on horizontal branches. Like all First Editions® Distylium, Swing Low is an adaptable plant that can be used in multiple landscape applications. It adapts well to pruning and is disease- and-insect resistant. Reddish maroon flowers in late winter to early spring. Grows moderately fast in full sun to part shade.

Available as JumpStarts® liners and #2 containers from Bailey (Booth 17019)
