One of our favorite broadleaf deciduous 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, slow-growing variegated form, brought into the US by plantsman Barry Yinger. Orixa 'Pearl Frost' matures at 8' tall x 6' wide, with each leaf edged in creamy white. We have found Orixa 'Pearl Frost' to thrive in both part sun to light shade, although part sun plants require more moisture.
