About Jewel Box™ Distylium

Attractive, soft, blue-green fine-textured foliage with a compact, rounded habit makes Jewel Box a great alternative to Boxwood or Holly. Use in mass plantings, borders or hedges.

Jewel Box Distylium Care

Hardy in USDA Zones 7-9

Water regularly until well-established, traditionally around 3 months. Afterward, supplemental watering may be required a couple of times a week. During the second growing season, watering your Jewel Box Distylium once a week during dry weather should be sufficient.

Well-draining soil is essential as Distylium can be prone to root rot in poorly-draining soil.

Fertilize the Jewel Box Distylium in spring with a slow-release fertilizer to ensure it stays happy and healthy throughout the year.

Spacing Your Jewel Box Distylium

For a seamless planting, plant your Jewel Box Distylium 2-3 feet apart. Otherwise, space them 4-5+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.

    The plants arrived healthy. Some were full and others lopsided. They are blue green. As a replacement for other shrubs, I prefer the newer boxwoods and hollies. After a few weeks in the ground they are not filling out. It may take a season to see growth since this distylium is a dwarf.

    Great looking plants. They have grown and become fuller in just 6 weeks.

    The plants arrived in great condition and were easy to transplant. Packaging was done very well.

    The plants look great. They were very dry and root bound when they arrived but now, 2-3 weeks after being planted, they appear to be surviving OK.

  5. ANGELA PARRISH (verified owner)

    The plants were packaged well and arrived looking great!

    If you are looking for an original, a unique plant – consider this one today. This handsome shrub is compact and evergreen. I planted it between a nandina and an azalea and it is a great companion. The wonderful, natural form is a gift. So glad I took a chance on a plant I was unfamiliar with.

    Pretty low shrub. Provides interest without overwhelming the front of our house.
