'Silver Mist'

The first part of this selection’s name, silver, is somewhat misleading. The silvery part is really only apparent when the new growth emerges in the spring, appearing almost pure-white to silvery-white, darkening gradually over 2–3 months until pale green, then turning yellow-green through winter into early spring. ‘Silver Mist’ forms a mounded, conical-pyramidal shrub, quite slow growing, to 1 x 0.7 m in ten years according to Auders & Spicer (2012), while Hatch (2018–2020) notes the original plant was 0.6 x 1 m after fifteen years. It requires a protection from cold drying winds, but does well both in full sun and shade. Selected by William Goddard of Floravista Gardens, British Columbia, Canada, before 1981. (Auders & Spicer 2012; Hatch 2018–2020).
