Disporum longistylum 'Green Giant'

Perfect for a privacy screen!
This charming Disporum grows tall bamboo-like stalks that sport nodding white flowers and then small blue-black fruit. This vigorous shroub was discovered in Sichuan, China by the noted plant explorer Dan Hinkley. 'Green Giant' is ideal for warmer, shadier spots. Plant a row of them in the border, and they will swiftly grow into a beautiful privacy screen. Very easy to grow in its hardiness range (7 to 9), this impressive specimen will reach 6 to 8 feet high, remaining evergreen and setting a profusion of white flowers and then blue-black fruit for as long as it goes untroubled by winter.

The leaves come on in shades of pink and white in the spring before they mature to deep green, Then the blooms open in June, hanging in nodding bells from wiry green branches. The flowers add a creamy yellow color to the impressive display of green and a fresh, fragrant note to the early summer garden. The blue-black fruit comes in the fall, and it holds well into the winter, so long as it doesn't get knocked down by frosty whether or gobbled up by hungry birds!

Plant your 'Green Giant' in average soil and water it frequently (especially in extreme heat), and it will reward you with a dense screen of attractive plants that change their look all throughout the year! Zones 7 to 9.
