One of our favorite broadleaf shrubs is undoubtedly Orixa japonica ‘Pearl Frost’. Orixa is a monotypic (one species) genus in the citrus (Rutaceae) family, that’s virtually unknown in US gardens.
We are particularly enamored with this superb variegated form, brought into the US by plantsman Barry Yinger. Orixa ‘Pearl Frost’ matures at 8′ tall x 6′ wide, and we have found it to thrive in both full sun to light shade, although full sun plants require more moisture.
Would love zones for all the lovely plants you show.
We try to include the hardiness zones, but if we miss any, please let us know.
Thank you, Barry Yinger! I have been searching for Orixa japonica white variegated for several years and have not found it available at the usual rare plant nurseries. When will PD make it available? PLEASE?
Plant Delights has some propagated and if they grow off well, will be in the spring catalog.
