Disporum bodinieri 'Shina no Tsuki' ("China Moon")

Fairy Bells


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
An introduction to the US by Asiatica Nursery from Japan, this stands out for the foliage which have broad centers of lime green in shade to yellowish in brighter light. Quite a good thing. We find this hard to distinguish from D. longistylum but are calling it bodinieri based on its shorter height and despite lacking a creeping rhizome. Evergreen in mild climates.
