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 shrub 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.

A Tradition of Distinction

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.

Impeccable Quality and Value – We Guarantee It!

At Wayside Gardens, “pedigreed plants” and “root strength” have always been watchwords.

We use larger containers and grow bigger plants than other nurseries, leading to greater root strength.
