Disporum longistylum Green Giant
Disporum longistylum 'Green Giant'
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!
