Linebacker Distylium with maroon leaves

Discover more information on 

Linebacker™ Distylium

Linebacker™ Distylium is an upright evergreen that takes on the shape of a white oak whisky barrel in youth and matures into an excellent screening or hedge plant. Reddish new growth matures to lustrous dark green and does not thin out in center of the plant. With no pests or diseases to trouble it, Linebacker™ is becoming a popular replacement for cherry laurel for screening and hedges. For growers, Linebacker™ is especially impressive in #7 and larger containers.
