There are multiple varieties of Distylium some large and some small. One of our favorite varieties of Distylium is "Coppertone."

This evergreen shrub has nearly year round interest as the new growth emerges with Coppery-red leaves that mature to a soothing blue-green color while also producing small, bright red flowers during the winter.

To top it all off, Coppertone Distylium (and all varieties of Distylium) have remarkable disease and Insect resistance.
