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.

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

    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.
