Evergreen Distylium Blue Cascade is a sun-loving easy-care shrub with matte blue leaves and creamy April flowers. It’s a good ground cover plant in dry areas.

Distylium are a member of the Witch Hazel family and native to China and Japan. Blue Cascade is a new cultivar bred in the US from the tough and attractive parent plants Distylium myricoides x Distylium racemosus. Blue Cascade’s long narrow leaves emerge bronze in spring and eventually mature to matte greeny-blue as summer progresses. Red flower buds appear in early spring and open to small flowers scattered along long arching stems in April.

This is a new hardy ground cover that tolerates heat and drought. It’s a good choice for tricky areas and rock gardens.  

Height and Spread of Distylium Blue Cascade
Distylium Blue Cascade will grow to a maximum height of 1.5 metres and spread over 1.2 but you can prune to keep it smaller.

How Hardy Is Distylium Blue Cascade
This Distylium was bred for hardiness. It will survive sub-zero winters if the roots are well drained and harsh hot summers once established.

How To Use Distylium Blue Cascade
This is excellent ground cover for exposed areas, slopes and dry shade beneath a hedgeline. The flowers attract pollinators in spring and the architectural shapes suits a low maintenance urban garden. Distylium is good for front gardens, rock and gravel gardens, and coastal areas suiting every space except waterlogged areas.

You can grow Distylium Blue Cascade in a well-watered and fed pot on the decking too.

How To Care for Distylium Blue Cascade
Once established Distylium Blue Cascade needs little attention. It will grow in most soils and is not fussy about pH or soil type. It prefers full sun and flowers best in hot spots but will grow in partial shade too.

Pruning is not required but you can trim to maintain a preferred shape. A layer of mulch around the roots in early spring will boost health and provide plentiful red flowers for the bees.
