Helwingia chinensis [DJHC 695] - Unusual, evergreen shrub, to 6' tall x 3' wide, with dark green foliage tending toward maroon -- this form, a Dan Hinkley collection from China, with leaves narrower than the straight species. Odd flowers are little white bubbles sitting in the leaf centers, appearing in spring and, occasionally again in fall. Best in at least light shade and well-drained soil with regular summer water. A colorful addition to the woodland garden. Frost hardiness expected to extend to USDA zone 7 as with the straight species.

Info

A vigorous growing shrub 6-8' high. Helwingia is one to add to our unusual list, as it flowers from its' leaves. This is possible due to fusion of plant parts, so rather than bloom in the leaf axils, the greenish flowers emerge from the midrib of the leaf. This plant is dioecious, a gardener needs both male and female plants to produce the purple fruit. Willow like leaves of this plant are medium green and evergreen. Great for the partial shade in your woodland garden.
